3D Metal Printing
Metalysis are producing metal powders suitable for 3D printing; this is due to their excellent physical properties such as flow, packing density, particle diameter and associated narrow size distribution.
Metalysis can tailor the mean particle diameter and corresponding size distribution of titanium and tantalum powders towards a given 3D printing process, i.e. selective laser melting (SLM), electron beam melting (EBM), direct metal deposition (DMD), etc.
Metalysis spherical titanium powders have successfully been used to fabricate a number of 3D printed parts, including automotive turbocharger component and an aerospace turbine guide vane. This represents a paradigm shift in the availability of consumables for the 3D printing of metal components.
