Steel

We provide several types of steel: stainless steel, type PH1 or 316L or maraging steel type MS1. You can create your functional prototypes for the aeronautical and medical sectors.

The values are given for information only. If you need precise values, please do not hesitate to have specimens made by our metal additive manufacturing department. You don’t know which material is the most suitable for your project or wish to have more details? Contact us
