Powder and Material Characterization

Last week we started to explain the basics of AM- Additive Manufacturing. Today we will look into the process of "measuring" the source material - powder.

Powder is the building block of additively manufactured parts. Size distribution of individual powder particles influences how the powder is compacted and affects the density of the build and possibility of defects visible later in the process. LM - Light microscope, SEM - Scanning Electron Microscope, X-ray CT – X-ray Computed Tomography help to define the powder quality.
