Innovative powder revolutionises 3D metal printing

Shorter production times, lower costs and fewer production faults. These are just some of the reasons why the metalworking industry is using additive methods more and more frequently. This is also reflected in the market for stainless steel powder used in additive manufacturing. According to estimates, this is increasing by more than 30 percent per year. Nevertheless, there is still room for expansion in 3D metal printing technology. Especially in selective laser melting (SLM), in which the component is built up in layers, the scope for design is limited with regard to construction and design. The more complex the component, the more extensive support structures are necessary, for example to prevent possible overhangs from sinking during the printing process or other component deformations. This is where the work of Mateusz Skalon starts, a researcher at <a class=”int-link-external” href=”https://www.tugraz.at/institutes/imat/home/” target=”_blank”>TU Graz’s Institute […]
