Nickel 3D Printing

Fathom delivers high-quality parts to its valued customers using the latest nickel 3D printing technology. Fathom can meet your requirements whether your project is high-precision or complex, short production run related, or time-sensitive.

Why Would You Choose Nickel for 3D Printing? / /

Nickel parts made using 3D printing have multiple benefits. Using traditional methods, nickel is difficult to manufacture but can be cost-effectively machined using 3D printing technologies. Nickel alloys offer good fatigue and fracture resistance, tensile strength, and corrosion resistance. Nickel 3D printed parts are perfect for many different applications, including turbines, rockets and other aerospace parts.

Nickel 3D Printing Services Offered By Fathom / /

Work with Fathom on your next nickel 3D printing job. During the nickel additive manufacturing process, a laser beam melts 20-60 micron layers of powdered nickel, making a part from a bed of powdered metal. Nickel 3D printing is one of 28 manufacturing processes offered by Fathom.
