Additive manufacturing High performance metal powder for additive manufacturing
By Alexander Stark
Hasco now offers a new high performance metal powder MP /…, which stands out for its high quality and its ideal combination of particle size, roundness and uniformity.
Additive manufacturing technologies have long ceased to be limited to the field of plastics. Also for demanding applications in tool and mold making, high performance systems and materials have been developed for metal processing. In processes such as selective laser melting (SLM), high-quality metal and metal alloy powders are processed, for example, in mold inserts with compliant cooling channels.
Unlike subtractive processes such as milling, drilling, turning and grinding, where material is removed, additive manufacturing involves applying a metal powder layer by layer and then laser melting it at various points on the layers. lower. This opens up completely new design possibilities.
Hasco now offers a new high performance metal powder MP /…, which stands out for its high quality and its ideal combination of particle size, roundness and uniformity. The powder is available in material grades 1.2709 and 1.4404 and enables the production of high quality complex construction geometries in all additive manufacturing processes for metals. It is supplied securely packaged in stable wide neck drums.
