C465 stainless steel material is an age-hardenable alloy, ideal for producing high-performance metal parts. Well-suited to demanding environments, C465 offers excellent strength and toughness, and high corrosion resistance. These properties are desirable for end-use parts in the aerospace, medical, and maritime industries. Applications include hand tools, plastic injection molds, oil and gas drilling machines, and other industrial equipment.

Metal 3D Printing is a laser-based technology that uses powdered metals. Similar to Laser Sintering, a high-powered laser selectively binds together particles on the powder bed while the machine distributes even layers of metallic powder. Support structures are automatically generated and built simultaneously in the same material, and are later manually removed. Once complete, the part undergoes heat treatment.
