When the excellent mechanical properties of grades 5 and 23 are not enough, there is the alloy TA 15. These alloy are formed with aluminium and vanadium, like grades 5 and 23, but also with other elements such as zirconium and molybdenum, which bestow greater mechanical strength, especially in hot applications.

Technology that allows to realize directly metal prototypes, ready to be tested or used as definitive parts. Available metals include Titanium (Ti64 grade 5), CobaltChrome (Cobalt-Chrome F75, Remanium Star CL), Aluminium (AlSi10Mg), StainlessSteel 17-4 and StainlessSteel AISI316L.
DMLS/SLM offers a remarkable precision and the materials are suitable for post-processings like milling and CNC turning, thermal treatments, surface treatments both esthetical and protective. DMLS/SLM is an optimal solution for the production of small lots, already in the definitive material, but without equipment costs (Rapid Manufacturing).
