Steel additive manufacturing: a study on corrosion resistance

The mechanical characteristics and the density of the pieces produced by additive manufacturing with stainless steels have long been studied and are currently very high, that is, similar if not higher than those of traditionally manufactured parts.
Their resistance to corrosion is less well known and investigated.

To investigate the corrosion behavior, the Metallurgy section of the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry (DCCI) of the University of Genoa in collaboration with TAV VACUUM FURNACES, the Saiem Srl company and the CNR-ICMATE of Padua started the study of steel samples made using the SLM technique (Selective Laser Melting).

Let's discover the interesting laboratory results.
