What is 3D printing powder?

3D printing powders are metal powders that are reduced to fine particles. 3D printing metal powder is the initial base material for most 3D printing processes to produce metal parts. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), is the fabrication of parts and products layer by layer. Both the properties of the metal powder and the type of 3D printing process determine the properties of the final product. The properties of a powder depending on how it was produced, which can result in varying particle morphologies and purities.

How to choose 3D printing powder?

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

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

For printers using laser as the energy source, due to its fine focus spot and fusible fine powder, it is suitable to use 15-53 μm powder as consumables, and the powder supply method is layer by layer;

The powder printing printer with an electron beam as the energy source has a micro-focus point, which is more suitable for melting coarse powder, suitable for 53-105 μm coarse powder;

For coaxial powder feeding printers, powders with a particle size of 105 ~ 150 μm can be used as consumables.
