Sweden/November 16, 2022 — Digital Metal (from Markforged) announced the availability of H13 metal powder for all Digital Metal binder jet printers. H13, which will go under the name DM H13, is a hot-work tool steel that can maintain its strength and hardness when exposed to high temperatures and exhibits good resistance to thermal fatigue. As an abrasion resistant metal, H13 is commonly found in forming tools such as extrusion dies and injection molds.
Adding this certified metal to the Digital Metal material library will expand the number of mission critical applications that can be solved on-demand right where parts are needed. Thanks to the precision and accuracy of the Digital Metal system, highly complex and detailed H13 parts can be printed, with properties that can be tailored toward application-specific requirements through post-sintering heat treatments.
