US-based 3DEO has developed 316L austenitic stainless steel powder for 3D printing.

The new material meets MPIF Standard 35 and is suitable for medical, industrial, marine and food processing applications, the company said.

“As our customers aim to innovate and gain a competitive edge with their next generation and new-to-market products, we have seen strong demand for 316L,” said Matthew Petros, 3DEO co-founder.  

The company says that it plans to release new materials in 2023, including a pure copper powder in Q2 2023.
