One of the most versatile steels
For the Desktop Metal Studio System, this is a versatile alloy for industries such as aerospace, tool and die manufacturing, oil and gas, automotive, agricultural and defense.
4140 steel is an excellent general tooling and end-use material due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, torsional strength and general toughness.
This low alloy steel contains chromium, molybdemum, and manganese.
4140 is typically used to create gears, spindles, fixtures, jigs and many other parts, including:
- Connecting Rods
- Sheet Metal Tooling
- Pump Shafts
Using the BMD process, users can quickly fabricate a wide variety of parts for testing against real-world conditions.
Printing in 4140 using the Desktop Metal Studio System can also allow shops to cost-effectively create custom tools for small and specialty jobs, while still keeping per-part costs low.
