Duplex Stainless Steel

Print complex metallurgy consistently with ADDere

While Duplex Stainless has a variety of upsides, including corrosion resistance, heat transfer and even greater strength to weight than other grades of stainless steel, it also presents certain metallurgical considerations that could make it difficult to work. These characteristics that make Duplex Stainless Steel attractive to the petrochemical, oil & gas, solar and nuclear power industries, also require machining and fabrication processes to be extraordinarily careful.

With the ADDere laser-wire additive manufacturing systems, with its precision laser heating and closed-loop control system, allows for precise heat control across the entire 3D metal print build. This keeps the Duplex Stainless Steel microstructure consistent across the entire additive metal build.

Going with Additive manufacturing in duplex stainless steel also reduces the machining requirements on complex components, reducing cost as well as the issues revolving around the complexities of welding the material.

Typical Applications for Duplex Stainless Steel

Numerous applications make use of shine and corrosion resistance. Plates, bars and tubing can all be made of stainless steel. Cutlery, surgical tools, large appliances, automobile and aerospace frames, construction materials, industrial equipment, water treatment equipment and storage vessels are all examples of these. Having the same biological cleanability as glass, stainless steel is heavily used in pharmaceutical and food processing plants.
