Stainless steel inox 316L


Features of 316L 3D printed stainless steel

This very robust material can be used in all industrial sectors (food industry, medical sector (surgical instruments), Energy, Automobile ...).

Thanks to its high corrosion resistance, 316L stainless steel is also suitable for the nautical industry (maritime components) and cutlery.

3D printing in stainless steel AIsi 316L allows to manufacture parts ready to be machined, prototypes and durable tools.

Example of fields of application for 316L stainless steel:

  • Fully functional production tools
  • Corrosion resistant tools and parts
  • Injection molds, molding and inserts
  • Rigid housings and parts for food machines
  • Maritime components
