What is 3D Printing Metal Powder Used for?

It is possible to 3D print metal powder without having to rely on costly manufacturing processes. The process is based on a new way to extract metal powder from metal oxides and uses low-cost, green methods. It uses a patented electrolysis process to remove the metal from its oxides. This new material can be used in a variety of 3D printing applications, including jewelry, medical devices, and even rocket injectors.

Metal powders have a variety of characteristics. They are difficult to work with in their raw form. Today's 3D printing of metal powder technology is based on many metals including nickel, stainless steel and titanium. The desired product and printing method will determine the best powder to use for 3D metal printing.

Metal powder is typically made of small particles of metal with diameters between 10 and 50 microns. The advantages of submicron-sized metal powder over atomized powder include a lower oxygen content, better transporting properties and better quality. This method will work for existing 3D printers.

Metal powders are not easy to make. Complex chemical reactions are required to produce a large powder. The normal reduction process will leave the powder with a high specific surface area, which will cause oxidation. The powder will lose its utility for many applications. This research paper also outlines a 2-step process to make metal powder. The method works better than atomization and is cheaper. This method also consumes less power than other methods.

The particle size distribution is one of the most important properties of metal powder. A powder will be recommended by an additive manufacturer based on the distribution of its particles. Laser diffraction is used to measure particle size distributions. This will produce a table or graph showing distribution of particles sizes. The standard D10, D50, and D90 are common particle size distributions.

The most popular type of metal 3D printer process is powder bed melting. This involves the dispersion of a thin layer of metal powder on a plate. The machine then selectively melts the cross-section of a part into the powder layer. There are two types of melting techniques for this process: Selective Laser Melting and Electron Beam Melting.

The 3D-ReKlaimer Metal Powder Recovery System uses a dust-tight filter system to reclaim metal powder from additive manufacturing processes. Companies can reduce their waste and operate costs by using it. It accepts bottles of used metal powder manually or can be fitted with an integral vacuum conveying system.

Parts made of high-performance alloys are possible to be printed on a 3D printer. They can even be used in harsh environments. These "superalloys" have high strength and stiffness, as well as excellent surface stability and resistance to corrosion. They are used for a variety of applications, including rockets and turbines.
