What are the Advantages of Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder for 3D Printing

Koalas were declared endangered in eastern Australia on Friday, with more and more koalas dying from disease, habitat loss, and other threats. Earlier, the koala was considered a vulnerable species, and the Commonwealth Department of the Environment changed its protection level to endangered on the east coast of Queensland, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory. Many koalas in Australia are infected with chlamydia. The disease can cause blindness, infection, and infertility. Last year, the Australian Koala Foundation said Australia had lost about 30 percent of its koala population in the past three years. Without immediate action, the species could become extinct by 2050.
Unlike koalas, which are on the brink of extinction, the market demand for Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder will grow substantially.

As a typical representative of refractory metal carbides, spherical tungsten carbide powder is suitable for 3D printing and can produce higher quality cemented carbide products.


3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the latest rapid prototyping device using technologies such as light curing and paper lamination. The biggest difference from ordinary printers is that the printing material can be liquid or solid powder. With the development of science and technology and the needs of popularization and application, the use of rapid direct prototyping to manufacture metal functional parts has become the main development direction of rapid prototyping.


Compared with traditional production methods, additive manufacturing technology has the characteristics of shorter production cycle, higher product precision, and individualization. In addition to being suitable for the manufacture of rapid prototyping small batch non-standard parts and heterogeneous material assemblies, metal 3D printing is also suitable for forming traditionally difficult parts, such as carbide tools, molds, structural parts, geological mining tools, etc.


Cemented carbide is an alloy material produced by powder metallurgy with tungsten carbide as the hard phase and cobalt, nickel, iron, copper and other metal elements as the bonding phase. It has high melting point, high strength, high hardness, good Red hardness, wear resistance, high temperature resistance and other characteristics, so it is widely used in extreme environments such as high temperature, high pressure, and high impact. However, alloys have very poor machinability due to their high hardness and high melting point.


The researchers used 3D printing technology to manufacture cemented carbide, which can effectively solve the problems of fracture, expansion and deformation of products made by traditional production methods. However, additive manufacturing technology has high requirements on the comprehensive performance of raw materials, and spherical tungsten carbide powder must be used, because it has the advantages of smooth surface, uniform particle size distribution, and high fluidity, which is the premise of smooth powder feeding and uniform powder distribution for 3D printers.
