Ultrafuse 316L combines greater freedom of design with a low total cost of ownership. 3D-printed parts acquire their final properties, for example in terms of hardness and strength, through a debinding and sintering process developed by BASF, which has emerged as the industry standard. As a filament, Ultrafuse 316 L is 80% stainless steel and has a 20% polymer content which allows for easy printing on many open FFF desktop printers.

Examples of applications using Ultrafuse 316L:

  • Tooling
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Series production
  • Functional parts and prototypes
  •  

    Ultrafuse 316L is cost-effective because:

  • Our filament works with any open FFF printer, which means low investment cost in hardware
  • We make use of a highly efficient and established post-processing technology used in the Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industry
  • As this is a filament, material handling is much safer and very easy. This allows an easy material exchange in comparison to handling with fine metal powders
  • It is in general 1.4 to 2 times cheaper than most metal powders, with less investment in hardware
  • There is a significant cost advantage for small and medium-sized components
  • The overall manufacturing costs decrease significantly with increasing the lot size
  • With additive manufacturing, you can create full stainless steel parts with a high degree of complexity
