Desktop Metal has announced the latest addition to its 3D printing materials portfolio, 4140 chromoly steel. Designed for low volume production and prototyping on its office friendly Studio System, the material is characterised by its toughness, high tensile strength, abrasion and impact resistance, and joins H13 tool steel and 316L and 17-4 PH stainless steels, in the company’s metals library. Early tests show that the material is ideal for applications in industries such as automotive, oil and gas, pumps and hydraulics, agriculture and defense.

Desktop Metal has put forward a number of examples where the material could be beneficial such as the manufacture of connecting rods for combustion engines. The company says 4140 is a key material choice for the creation of functional prototypes as it can withstand necessary high temperatures and mechanical stresses. Further examples include custom press brake tools for sheet metal tooling due to the materials toughness and resistance impact, and the creation of working models for complex mechanical couplings used in machinery.
