Nitinol for Additive Manufacturing

Webinar on demand from our additive manufacturing experts

Success in Nitinol Additive Manufacturing- Effective Translation of Shape Memory and Super Elasticity Properties via 3D Printing

During this webinar, Gaurav Lalwani, Ph.D., Medical Applications Development Engineer, and Hongtao Wang, Ph.D., Staff Specialist Metallurgist- New Product Development, discuss Nitinol for additive manufacturing. The webinar explores key areas of focus to enable successful use of Nitinol for AM, including the importance of stringent control of Nitinol chemistry throughout the additive lifecycle, from powder to finished part, matching print parameter sets to powder chemistry to effectively control over shape memory and superelastic properties for the finished device and producing fully dense, near net shape Nitinol components to eliminate additional post-processing steps.

Effective Translation of Shape Memory and Superelastic Properties from Wrought to 3D

Carpenter Technology and their branch of 3D printing experts, Carpenter Additive, carried out a study to create a systematic framework to optimize additive manufacturing for Nitinol, focusing on three factors for success:

1) Stringent control of Nitinol chemistry throughout the AM lifecycle from feedstock to finished part
2) Optimized printing parameter sets to enable effective control over shape memory and superelastic properties
3) Fully dense near net shape Nitinol components to eliminate additional post-processing steps
