What is Metal Powder Material for 3D Printing
The spread of the novel coronavirus is taking a direct hit on the operations of airlines in Asia. About 500,000 flights taking off and landing in mainland China have been canceled since January, according to aviation information company Cerium. Tourists and business trips have plummeted. On the booking website, there are a large number of air tickets for local routes with a price reduction of nearly 90% compared with the original price and only tens of yuan for a one-way trip.
In February, China's aviation industry recorded its largest single-month loss of 24.59 billion yuan, of which airlines lost 20.96 billion yuan.
Data from the Civil Aviation Administration of China showed that in February, the number of passengers traveling by air fell 84.5% year-on-year to 8.34 million.
The stagnation of the Asian aviation industry has brought volatility to Nitinol Powder.
What is metal 3D printing?
Metal 3D printing is a 3D printing technology that uses metal powder to
directly print metal parts, also known as metal powder sintering (SLM). In
addition to good plasticity, 3D printing metal powder must also meet the
requirements of fine powder particle size and high particle size distribution.
Narrow, high sphericity, good fluidity and high bulk density requirements.
Currently, the metal powders used in most 3D printers include stainless steel,
aluminum alloys, cobalt-chromium alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys and
nickel alloys. Iron-based alloys are engineering The most important and most
used metal material in technology is mostly used for the forming of complex
structures, and is widely used in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, machinery
manufacturing and other industries.
3D Metal Printing Materials
Nickel alloy powder
The oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance of nickel alloy make it
suitable for the harsh environment of high temperature and high pressure. When
the nickel alloy is heated, a thick and stable oxide layer will be passivated on
the surface of the alloy to protect the inside of the alloy from corrosion. Good
mechanical properties are maintained over a wide temperature range.
Cobalt-chromium alloy powder
Because of its excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance,
cobalt-chromium alloy powder for metal 3D printing is commonly used to print
various artificial joints and orthopaedic implants, and it is also used in the
field of dentistry.
Titanium alloy powder
It is widely used in the aerospace field. Using the advantages of 3D printing
to help optimize product design, such as replacing the original solid body with
a complex and reasonable structure, the finished product has lower weight and
better mechanical properties. This can not only reduce costs, but also
Lightweight production of each component can be achieved.
Copper alloy powder
With excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, copper with excellent
thermal conductivity in thermal management applications can be combined with
design freedom to produce complex internal structures and conformal cooling
Stainless steel powder
Relatively cheap metal printing materials, cost-effective, good corrosion
resistance, high strength, can quickly and efficiently manufacture small batches
of complex industrial parts.

The Japanese minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry recently held talks with the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and industry in Washington, where he is visiting, and agreed to include basic principles on joint research and development of semiconductors and strengthening of supply chains. Japan's economy, Trade and Industry Minister has asked the United States to increase the Nitinol Powder will continue to increase in the future.
