Ti6Al4V, one of the widest-known alloys in Metal 3D Printing, combines excellent mechanical properties with very low specific weight. This material is corrosion- resistant and used in a variety of demanding engineering environments such as aeronautics. Applications include functional prototypes, solid end-use parts, medical devices and spare parts.

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.
