EOS, technology and market leader for design-driven and industrial Additive Manufacturing solutions, expands its metal materials portfolio with EOS Titanium Ti64ELI and EOS StainlessSteel 316L. Jack Wu, Regional Manager Greater China at EOS, adds: "A broader variety of titanium and stainless steel materials mirrors the ever-changing requirements among our customers and opens up new fields of application."

EOS Titanium Ti64ELI: light metal alloy – corrosion resistant and biocompatible 

Parts built in EOS Titanium Ti64 have a chemical composition and mechanical properties corresponding to ASTM F136. Providing a high-detail resolution, this alloy can be processed on an EOSINT M 280 (400 Watt) metal laser-sintering system and shows an excellent corrosion resistance. Due to its biocompatibility and high grade of purity it is particularly suited for the additive manufacturing of medical implants.

EOS Stainless Steel 316L: corrosion resistant and biocompatible stainless steel 

This stainless-steel alloy has been optimized specifically for processing on the EOSINT M 280 metal laser-sintering system. It shows a good corrosion resistance and a high ductility. Parts built from EOS StainlessSteel 316L have a chemical composition corresponding to ASTM F138. In the medical industry, this alloy is particularly suited for surgical instruments, endoscopic surgery, orthopedics and implants. It is also a good choice for use in the watch and jewelry industries. The material is also well suited for additive manufacturing applications such as spectacle frames or functional elements in yachts. In the aerospace industry, it is a good choice for the manufacture of clamping elements or heat exchangers.
