Los Angeles based leading high volume 3D printing specialist 3DEO has announced the launch of 316L austenitic stainless steel. A fully austenitic, non-magnetic stainless steel, 316L (equivalent to UNS S31603) maintains excellent performance at room and moderately elevated temperatures, as well as excellent ductility and mechanical performance. This weldable material is extremely corrosion resistant, which makes it ideal for applications that will experience harsh environments. 316L is commonly used in applications such as laboratory equipment, impellers and pumps, engine parts, food processing equipment, jewelry, kitchen appliances, surgical instruments, marine, chemical and petrochemical processing, and more. 3DEO helps customers with their complex metal components at every stage of the product life cycle, from early ideation and prototyping to manufacturing at scale. And because prototypes are manufactured using the same machines and technologies as longer production runs, with 3DEO, customers can seamlessly progress from prototype to production without the need to undergo lengthy or costly design changes or requalifications to launch products. Based in Torrance in California, 3DEO is one of the world’s highest volume manufacturers of 3D printed precision metal components made with its patented metal 3D printing technology, Intelligent Layering. 3DEO’s partnership-approach to early-stage design coupled with its proprietary technology and expertise in complex geometries and design for additive manufacturing DfAM make 3DEO stand out from other manufacturers. 3DEO created the Manufacturing Cloud, an end-to-end manufacturing platform built to scale 3DEO’s proprietary metal 3D printers into mass production through software, 3D printing, robotics, automation, augmented reality, and materials innovation.
