3D Printing: Annealing a New Metal

We have just sintered a new metal at Rapids Reproductions! The A2 Tool Steel was not only sintered but annealed as well.

Annealing is a heat treatment process that alters the micro structure of a material to change its electrical properties. Typically annealing is used to reduce hardness, increase ductility, and help eliminate internal stresses.

A2 Tool Steel is a versatile, air-hardening tool steel that is characterized by good toughness and excellent dimensional stability in heat treatment.
