Cobalt superalloys – powder for additive manufacturing

3D printing with cobalt superalloys is suitable for biomedical applications such as prostheses or implants, but also for engine components, gas and wind turbines.

CoCr F75 in additive manufacturing - the superalloy for biomedical applications

CoCrMo is a Cobalt-Chromium-Molybdenum based superalloy with excellent mechanical properties, wear and corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and very high specific strength as well. The alloy‘s excellent biocompatibility, strength and wear resistance led to its widely usage in biomedical applications such as prosthetic and dental implants.

Applications:

  • Orthopedic implants
  • Dental implants
  • Medical devices
  • Engine components
  • Gas- and wind turbines
