Nickel alloys material characteristics make it ideal for a wide range of applications, for example in gas turbines for both aerospace and energy industries, process industry, oil and gas, ship building.
The nickel alloy family of powders encompasses the IN625, IN718 and HX alloys. All these powders are designed and tested for use on EOS’ metal systems.
All EOS nickel alloy 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 show good tensile, fatigue, creep and rupture strength at temperatures up to 700°C making it ideal for many high temperature applications such as gas turbine parts, instrumentation parts, power and process industry parts, etc.
