Inconel is a high-end engineering nickel super-alloy which can withstand temperatures over 900degreeC. Currently 625 and 718 grades are available to 3D print. Traditionally Inconel is cast, but with the latest DMLS technology parts can be printed, removing the need for expensive tooling. It is used extensively within aerospace, mainly for jet-engine turbine blades. Motorsport and high-end automotive companies are also using Inconel for exhaust and turbo applications. 3D Inconel models in either grade can be heat-treated, polished, hand finished and even welded into larger assemblies.
