What type of powder is used to print 3D Metals?

Flowability. One of the main characteristics for metal powder is the ability to flow through the 3D printer. Materials that have higher flowability are able to be easily manipulated and create more consistent products and layers. In addition, they tend to make less goods with uneven layers. The increased flowability of the metal powder is a reason why it's simpler to create a metal 3D product.

Powder 316L stainless steel

Powder made of stainless steel 316L has been studied extensively for its impact on AM. It's a material representative which means that results can be applied to other metal alloys. The distribution of the size of the powder as determined by the 4S technique is 9.43 mm. Particle shape factor (PSF) is in the vicinity of one. The properties of the powder are described in Table 1.


The most commonly used metal alloy used for 3D printing processes is titan. It is an extremely strong and durable metal that is perfect for the production of functional parts such as prototypes, models, and other products for military, aerospace and automotive uses. Titanium is also biocompatible and is commonly used for medical implants.

The advantages in titanium-based powders are numerous, and the material is gaining popularity in additive manufacturing applications. It's about half of more weight and weight that steel and its unique properties can make it a perfect candidate when it comes to 3D printing. Titanium is lightweight, heat-resistant and chemically inert, and is biocompatible. One of its many strengths is that it is especially beneficial in automobile and aerospace projects with weight being an issue. the item is essential.


Niobium powder is an ideal material for 3D printing for metals because it is bio-inert and simple to process. During additive manufacturing, it is used to make niobium-based alloys which can be used to fabricate aerospace parts as well as engines. This process is known as"laser-driven bed fusion of powder" (also known as SLM), and it makes use of a laser to selectively melt powders to create metals.

Niobium is chemically comparable metal with tantalum, and their melting points can be comparable. They also share similar electrical and thermal conductivity. These characteristics make them ideal when it comes to processing chemicals. They are both used in the manufacture of capacitors and some other electric devices.
