Aluminum alloys are essential powders in the world of additive manufacturing (AM). Their attractive combination of fine microstructures, high heat conductivity and low weight, make their mechanical properties higher or at least comparable to cast material. Therefore, aluminum alloys are in high demand, and well-suited, for additive manufacturing processing in the automotive and aerospace industries. Even so, there are still some challenges with these alloys if you have a low-quality powder, which includes:
- Production of repeatable and reliable parts
In this paper learn how the particle size distribution (PSD) cuts and the atomization process impact the quality of the powder.
