Global provider of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) metals and polymers, EOS GmbH, has released four news metal AM materials for 3D-printing. EOS StainlessSteel CX, EOS Aluminium AlF357, EOS Titanium Ti64 Grade 5, and EOS Titanium Ti64 Grade 23 have been tailored to suit a broad array of applications, ranging from automotive, medical, and aerospace applications.
EOS offers comprehensive data on the material properties of all four metals – such as the number of test specimens on which the mechanical properties are based on – as well as detailed scanning electron microscope (SEM) images that provide an insight into the material quality.

The company is providing documentation and transparency for aerospace and automotive industry customers to easily compare the benefits of selective laser melting (SLM) – also known as direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) – against traditional manufacturing technologies and other 3D-printing technologies. Such data and openness are a requirement for the use of additive manufacturing (AM) in series production.
