Forward AM Launches Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Material for Metal 3D Printing



New filament is especially developed for applications requiring high hardness and mechanical strength for various industries

Forward AM is launching an innovative filament comprising metal powder with a polymer binder for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). It enables the safe, easy and cost-efficient production of metal parts for prototypes, metal tooling, and functional metal parts in FFF, the most accessible 3D printing process. After the subsequent industry-standard debinding and sintering process, the final 3D printed part is 17-4 stainless steel.


With its high mechanical strength and hardness, the new 3D printing filament is ideally suited for a wide range of applications such as tooling, jigs and fixtures, and functional prototypes. Good corrosion resistance and the ability to be fully heat treated to high levels of strength and hardness make Ultrafuse 17-4 PH a stand- out choice for a range of industries including petrochemicals, aerospace, automotive, and medical.


Ultrafuse metal filaments are specifically developed to work on all common open- source Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) printers from beginner to industrial level, making it one of the easiest and most cost-effective technologies in metal Additive Manufacturing. FFF enables the production of hollow structures and lightweight designs. Additionally, users benefit from the traditional advantages of a non- oxidizing metal, such as corrosion resistance and outstanding strength.
