Aluminum alloys are essential powders in the world of additive manufacturing (AM). However, the aluminum alloys process window is smaller than other AM alloys; therefore, the selection of the correct powder from the beginning of the production cycle is key to ensuring dependable properties.

Aluminum alloys are essential powders in the world of additive manufacturing (AM). They are attractive for a variety of applications due to the combination of fine microstructures, high heat conductivity and low weight, with mechanical properties that are equal to or higher than cast materials.

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:  

• Processability
• 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.
