3D Printing Cobalt Chrome MP1
3D Printing in Cobalt Chrome. Strong & Durable Service.
3D print your designs in Cobalt Chrome MP1 using our DMLS \ SLM additive manufacturing service.
Additive manufacturing in Cobalt Chrome MP1 (cobalt-chromium-molybdenum) uses the DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) or SLM process. A very fine metal alloy powder is melted with a laser to produce your design layer by layer. Once your design is complete any support structures are removed and any finishing completed. Unused powder is recycled for use on the next model.
Cobalt Chrome MP1 can work out more cost effective than traditional 'subtractive' for fabrication processes, especially where you have complex or intricate designs that would be impossible or difficult to produce otherwise.
Cobalt Chrome MP1 (CoCrMo).
Sometimes referred to as a 'Super Alloy', Cobalt Chrome MP1 offers designers a material which features excellent mechanical properties in terms of strength & hardness plus high corrosion, wear and temperature resistance. The MP1 alloy conforms to the chemical composition UNS R31538 for high carbon CoCrMo.
CoCrMo also offers you excellent resistance to corrosion as well as thermal and mechanical stress while Post build Solution Annealing of parts will also provide enhanced elongation at break.
Engine and power train applications for the automotive and aerospace industries, plus the medical industry where parts are suitable for some Biomedical applications.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Quick response to quotation request. Well packaged part, quick delivery. Very much appreciated as the part was used in a review meeting."
"Parts arrived very quickly and to a very high standard. The small parts I ordered would have been difficult and expensive to make with conventional subtractive manufacturing techniques."
