Printing metals?

Posted · Printing metals?

Hello,

 I have not done any 3D printing. I am somewhat familiar and I am interested in developing data for conformal cooling channels for injection mold components. We have yet to fire up the printer and try the 17-4 stainless material feedstock. What about the print heads? Anyone have any input? 

FYI, I spent over a decade in the Metal Injection Molding arena. Product development, mold design and fabrication. 

Thanks for any and all input.....Jack

    Hi Jack, 

     

    I'm too interested in conformal cooling for injection molds. I think you can print BASF ultrafuse 17-4 steel with a UMS5 paired with the CC print cores. Then you need to find a place to post process the "green" parts. Take a look at matterhackers they have some information on that toppic
