Profile Description

SSAB is a global steel company with approximately 14,000 employees in over 50 countries and a leading position in high-strength steels and related services. We aim to be the first, in 2026, to offer fossil-free steel to the market and largely eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from our own operations in around 2030.

Additive manufacturing (AM) with SSAB AM steel powder gives you unique opportunities to produce weight-optimized steel parts. In traditional machining it’s common to remove up to 90% of the material. When designing for AM you only use the steel that is necessary for the part’s engineering function, resulting in a light and strong product.

All the properties of a high-strength steel
Parts made with SSAB AM steel powder have properties equivalent to a premium steel. You get an optimal combination of strength, impact toughness, and isotropy. Parts can be used in as-built condition, or after further heat treatment. The high density of the printed parts also makes them suitable for polishing to a high gloss, for example when using them as molds.

30% shorter cycle time in injection molding
Advanced cooling channels in the molds are made possible with steel powder and AM, speeding up production in plastic injection molding.

Top benefits of additive manufacturing (AM)

1. Freedom of design

2. Minimal waste

3. Rapid prototyping

4. Reduced tooling costs

5. Consolidation of parts

6. On-demand manufacturing

7. Spare parts production

8. Sustainability

Making the ideal powder
SSAB AM is a gas atomized steel powder tailored for ideal properties for AM technologies to ensure a trouble-free use. The steel powder is produced by breaking up high quality molten steel by inert gas, producing spherical powder with excellent flow properties and powder size.
