Advantages: Granules FCer WC-Ni is a composite feedstock that can be sintered in conventional vacuum furnaces. Furthermore, it remains easily printable by screw FFF, without clogging problems. Granules FCer WC-Ni is specifically formulated to manufacture hard-metal parts through 3D printing, allowing easy manufacturing of dense pieces and scaffolds with custom shapes. Sintering of the printed composite in conventional vacuum furnaces yields to  100% hardmetal parts.
