AVARTANA metal powders for additive manufacturing ( 3D printing, rapid prototyping) are characterized by a spherical morphology and high packing density, which confer good flow properties. For powder bed processes these are essential when applying fresh powder layers to the bed to ensure uniform and consistent part build.
For blown powder processes good flow ensures uniform build rates. Tight control of the particle size distribution also help ensure good flow ability. Low oxygen powders result in clean micro structures and low inclusion levels in the finished parts.
