Metal Manufacturing Services
3Diligent classifies our metal services as ferrous, non-ferrous, and enhanced. These alloys, steels, and naturally occurring elements can be 3D printed, CNC machined, cast, injection-molded, and subjected to sheet metal fabrication to achieve your digital-manufacturing applications.
Metal Manufacturing Services Overview
Materials that fall into the metal services class are typically malleable or ductile. They conduct electricity and heat relatively well and when prepared, polished, or fractured, show a lustrous appearance. For most metals, you can choose a finish type.
The inclusion of iron in ferrous metals commonly instills high tensile strength. Other typical properties include higher magnetism and a higher carbon ratio—commonly resulting in rust from moisture. However, some notable ferrous metals, stainless steel, for example, have intrinsic protection from rust. This makes stainless a prime candidate for heavy-duty, weathering applications in the construction and tooling industries.
