High-temperature components made from 1.4828

The Wohlers Report 2018 confirms the rapid growth in the sale of metal laser melting machines, with turnover in 2017 having risen by 80 percent compared with the previous year. toolcraft is part of this trend and focuses on continuously improving its work in the area of additive manufacturing and on increasing its capacity in this field. For example, the company has now expanded its machine park to a total of ten systems. The company’s investments have enabled it to use heat-resistant components made from 1.4828 to extend its range of services on an ongoing basis.

1.4828 – an outstanding option for equipment and machinery manufacturing
Additive manufacturing is gradually taking a wide range of industrial sectors by storm. The method has significant benefits over conventional production processes, including the ability to handle complex geometries and cavities as well as weight and cost reductions thanks to FEM calculations and topology optimisation. toolcraft also constantly strives to broaden its range of materials. Besides nickel-based, aluminium and titanium alloys, the company processes stainless and tool steel. Technical components made from 1.4828 are resistant to heat and scaling. The chrome-nickel-steel is suitable for use in temperatures of between 800 and 1,000°C. Its properties make it the ideal material for producing components in the field of equipment and machinery manufacturing. What’s more, it is non-magnetisable.

Complete process chain
Laser melting equipment is only part of the story. Manufacturing high-quality 3D-printed components requires a complete process chain, from design, manufacturing and finishing to optical, tactile and non-destructive testing. toolcraft offers the entire additive manufacturing value chain in house and achieved Nadcap certification for the process in March. The company also evaluates the dynamic strength of various metals by performing fatigue testing in its own lab.
