EOS announced the introduction of four new metal materials for additive manufacturing (AM) on the EOS M 290 metal system, including two stainless steels, one tool steel and one nickel alloy. These four new metal materials were designed and optimized specifically to the needs of additive manufacturing. EOS StainlessSteel 254 is an austenitic stainless steel that comes with a 40/60 µm process for the EOS M 290 system. The high chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen alloying give excellent corrosion resistance in many difficult environments.
The EOS StainlessSteel SuperDuplex comes with a 40/80 µm process for the EOS M 290 system. This is an austenitic-ferritic duplex stainless steel optimized for additive manufacturing while maintaining super duplex properties.
EOS ToolSteel CM55 comes with a 40/80 µm process for the EOS M 290 system. It is a cobalt-free, ultra-high strength, and high hardness steel for tooling and engineering solutions.
EOS NickelAlloy HAYNES® 282® is a nickel alloy powder intended for manufacturing parts on EOS metal systems.
