Nickel 3D-printing with materials such as Inconel, Hastelloy and waspaloy

Nickel-based materials impress with their high strength and excellent properties under extreme operating conditions. These include, for example, high temperatures up to over 1,000 °C and corrosive surrounding media. Typical applications are found, for example, in turbine blades of gas turbines or aircraft engines. A component produced from metal powder in metal 3D-printing also meets your requirements in the field of prototyping or series application.

With over 40 qualified metal materials, Rosswag Engineering offers a globally unique selection and thus the right material for many metal 3D printing applications. The classification of the materials in Technology Readiness Level (TRL) shows the maturity of a material from initial qualification to series production.
As a customer, you benefit from our expertise in processing all materials in a holistic process chain with the appropriate process parameters in each case.

Nickel-based materials


The nickel-based alloy Alloy 625 exhibits very good corrosion resistance, especially to pitting and crevice corrosion. The material also reacts insensitively to many acids. Due to the addition of molybdenum and niobium, good mechanical properties are achieved even without downstream heat treatment. In the solution-annealed condition, the material can be used for temperature ranges above 600 °C. Typical applications are in the chemical, offshore and nuclear industries. Thanks to its excellent weldability, additive manufacturing can be used to realize a wide range of products.
