Uddeholm launches AM Corrax powder specifically designed with the needs of plastic injection molders in mind.
Uddeholm launches AM Corrax powder specifically designed with the needs of plastic injection molders in mind. This powder is purposefully made for additive manufacturing with a unique set of properties, making it the ultimate choice for tools where superior corrosion resistance combined with high hardness is needed. Since its launch, the powder has proven itself in plastic extrusion and injection molding applications.
Bohler offers the growing AMPO family of additive powders, which features six powder types for a wide range of applications and printing technology. The AMPO product line is composed of tool steel, high-speed steel, corrosion resistant steel and nickel alloy AM powders. Through rigorous R&D methods, in-house testing facilities and stringent production process controls Bohler ensures a consistent spherical powder and particle size distribution to ensure optimal properties for the additive process.
Prototyping helps evaluate and test a design, clarify production costs, sell a product and secure patents.
