ProdEX Metal Materials

ProdEX Metal Materials  

3Diligent ProdEX offers a range of ferrous, non-ferrous, and enhanced metal options. Included among them are iron, steel, aluminum, titanium, inconel, copper, bronze, and precious metals.  These metals are offered across a range of manufacturing technologies including 3D Printing, CNC machining, casting, injection molding, and sheet metal fabrication to meet the needs of your applications.

Metals Overview

Metals are often sturdy, malleable, fusible, and conductive. Alloys can generally be classified into hard and soft sectors with, respectively, metals like steel and stainless steel in one cohort and and brass, copper, magnesium, and aluminum in another.

For most metals offered through the ProdEX manufacturing service, you can specify a finish type.

3Diligent has supported hundreds of companies in providing digital-manufacturing solutions for their most challenging project needs.

Ferrous Metals Services

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.

Non-Ferrous Services

This particular category of metal is more rust-resistant than the ferrous type and is easily used in casting, sheet metal, low strength, and general applications requiring malleability or weather resistance.
