Cobalt chrome’s material characteristics make it ideal for a wide range of applications in aerospace and medical.
The cobalt chrome powders are designed and tested for use on EOS’ metal systems.
All EOS cobalt chrome powders are shipped with an inspection certificate (according to EN 10204, Type 3.1) showing the results of the extensive QA testing not only of the powder itself but also of test parts built on a dedicated system with a dedicated process.
EOS also offers a wide range of validated processes for each of the above materials. These offer the optimal combination of parameters (e.g. laser power, layer thickness, etc.) in order to ensure that the properties of the 3D printed part are consistently achieved.
Parts have good corrosion resistance and high mechanical properties even at elevated temperatures plus are nickel-free and show a fine, uniform crystal grain structure. This combination is ideal for many applications in the aerospace and medical industries.
