LLNL stainless steel 3D printing “better than traditional manufacturing”

In a recent study led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), scientists have discovered a way of making stainless steel two to three times stronger than usual. The method takes advantage of the unique grain structure of stainless steel parts when 3D printed using powder bed fusion (PBF) technology. Though the goal of the research was […]
