3D Printing Powder

Metal powders are the most important basic material for 3D printing processes used to produce metal parts. 3D printing is a rapid prototyping technology , also known as additive manufacturing , that allows for the production of three dimensional objects or products without any need to create physical prototypes.This technique can be used in many fields including architecture, civil engineering (such as buildings), automotive manufacturing and even clothing design by printing layer by layer
3D printing is an incredible, recent development in the field of manufacturing.This process allows for objects to be created from digital models using additive machines that layer material on top-notchtechnology and tools which are both complex yet simple at once – making it accessible by anyone who wants one!

Application of 3D printing powder

3D printing is an emerging technology that will soon be used in many different applications. For example, it’s already being applied for making jewelry and footwear by designers who want to create their own designs without having any restrictions on size or shape; industrial models such as those made during design stages of mold manufacturing processes (which can’t always require detail),or even building houses through AEC practices like construction engineering- where architects may request prints from engineers before they happen.

Different 3D printing equipment and molding processes require different particle size distributions.At present, the commonly used powder size range for metal 3D printing is 15-53μm (fine powder),53-105μm (large size),and in some cases,it can be relaxed to 105-150μm (larger particles).

The choice of metal powder particle size for 3D printing is mainly based on metal printers with different energy sources.

For printers that use laser as energy source,due to its fine focus point and easy to melt fine powder,it is suitable to use 15-53μm powder as a consumable material. The powder supply method uses electron beam as energy, which is more suitable for melting coarse powder and is suitable for use-105μm coarse powder.

For coaxial powder feed printers,powder with a particle size of 105 to 150 μm can be used as a consumable.
