Qualified for use in Sapphire printers

Velo3D can now use M300 tool steel in Sapphire printers. It is seeing interest from automotive manufacturers for use in high-pressure die cast inserts, injection moulding, and other types of tooling.

“By qualifying M300 tool steel for use in our printers, we’re able to service entirely new industries, like automotive and tooling, that can leverage Velo3D’s advanced capability to print high quality, large diameter internal channels for their applications,” says Greg Brown, Velo3D VP of Technology.

Velo3D’s end-to-end solution is suited for utilizing M300 tool steel due to its ability to print parts with quality surface finishes in complex large-diameter internal cooling channels. These channels can prolong the life of the tooling.


Velo3D has seen high demand for Sapphire printers utilizing M300 tool steel in both Sapphire and Sapphire XC platforms. It is expecting deliveries as early as Q4 2022.
