17-4 PH stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in the aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on our industrial series printers.
A2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. We use it for punches, dies, and form tooling on our industrial series printers.
As a general purpose aluminum, 6061 combines good machinability, strength, and weldability. It can additionally be anodized for a good surface finish. We use it for many of the machined components in our industrial series printers.
Also known as marine grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.
Ti-6Al-4V, also known as Grade 5 titanium, is ideal for lightweight applications requiring high tensile strength and corrosion resistance. It is widely used in aerospace applications such as airframe components and turbine blades.
An air-hardened tool steel with high carbon and chromium content, D2 trades toughness for great hardness and abrasion resistance. It is often used for cutting tools and dies.
7075 aluminum is one of the strongest aluminum alloys available. With a high strength-to-weight ratio, 7075 is stronger than many common structural steels.
H13 is a hot work steel widely used in die casting and tooling applications. Alloyed with chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium, it is known for its strength and resistance to thermal shock.
Inconel's strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding. This superalloy is used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine.
Known for its high thermal and electrical conductivity, ductility, and machinability, copper is widely used in heat exchangers, as well as electrical and construction applications.
Formed from the combination of two materials, composite parts are incredibly strong and versatile. Our unique fabrication process enables you to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed objects.
Carbon Fiber has the highest strength to weight ratio of our reinforcing fibers. Six times stronger and eighteen times stiffer than Onyx, Carbon Fiber reinforcement is commonly used for parts that replace machined aluminum.
Fiberglass is our entry level continuous fiber, providing high strength at an accessible price. Two and a half times stronger and seven times stiffer than Onyx, Fiberglass reinforcement results in strong, robust tools.
Five times as strong and seven times as stiff as Onyx, High Strength High Temperature (HSHT) Fiberglass is best used for parts loaded in high operating temperatures.
Kevlar® possesses excellent durability, making it optimal for parts that experience repeated and sudden loading. As stiff as fiberglass and much more ductile, it’s best used for end of arm tooling.
Onyx yields stiff, strong, and accurate parts. Already 1.4 times stronger and stiffer than ABS, Onyx can be reinforced with any continuous fiber. Onyx sets the bar for surface finish, chemical resistivity, and heat tolerance.
