LPW Technology Ltd, which provides metal powders for the additive manufacturing (AM) industry, has published a new case study that covers the impact of metal powder variability on AM build quality.

‘For metal powders to deliver consistent AM built parts with the required properties it is critical to de?ne an appropriate material speci?cation, with due regard for tolerances on manufacturing and testing variance,’ the company said in a press release. ‘It is also necessary to establish limits which are tight enough to ensure any variations do not have a negative impact on process and application performance. Changes within speci?cation values can cause variations in material processability during part manufacture, or the ?nal mechanical properties of the part itself.’
