Complex parts of Selective Laser Melted (SLM) 316L stainless steel are now proposed as standard products by additive manufacturing companies and have been thoroughly studied on blade-type machines. In this study, a 10-45µm 316L powder batch was characterized and used to produce specimens on a forward and backward counter-rotating roller machine. Effects of solution annealing on density and microstructure of SLM cubes were studied. Tensile properties, impact strength and hardness of as-build and heat-treated samples were compared to forged materials and data of 316L SLM produced on blade-type machines.
