What is Metal Powder Material for 3D Printing

A recent poll in Britain found that public support for sanctions against Russia is falling as fuel and prices rise.  

The proportion of people willing to accept higher fuel prices as a result of western sanctions against Russia fell 14 percentage points to 36% from 50% in March, according to a survey conducted for the Telegraph by consultancy Redfield & Wilton Strategies.  

Global energy and fuel prices have soared since the start of the year and remain high because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and uncertainty over Russian supplies.  

The survey also found that 54% of people believe their own financial situation has worsened in the past year, up 12 percentage points from 42% two months ago. Sixty-two percent think things will get worse in the year ahead. Less than a third of respondents said they had received a pay rise to keep up with inflation, with two-thirds of those saying it was not enough to keep up with rising living costs.  

The figures suggest that public concern about the conflict with Ukraine is now likely to be overtaken by financial worries.  

Separately, the UK's consumer price index rose 7 percent this month from a year earlier, the highest since March 1992, according to figures released recently by the Office for National Statistics. In addition, a separate report released a few days ago by the Centre for Economics and Business Research said that real household disposable income in the UK will fall by 3% in 2022, equivalent to a loss of £2,320 per household, which would lead to the biggest drop in living standards since the 1950s. That is mainly because wages aren't keeping up with rising energy and fuel costs.  

The prices of other commodities like the Nitinol Powder are also expected to be influenced.

What is metal 3D printing?

Metal 3D printing is a 3D printing technology that uses metal powder to directly print metal parts, also known as metal powder sintering (SLM). In addition to good plasticity, 3D printing metal powder must also meet the requirements of fine powder particle size and high particle size distribution. Narrow, high sphericity, good fluidity and high bulk density requirements. Currently, the metal powders used in most 3D printers include stainless steel, aluminum alloys, cobalt-chromium alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys and nickel alloys. Iron-based alloys are engineering The most important and most used metal material in technology is mostly used for the forming of complex structures, and is widely used in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, machinery manufacturing and other industries.


3D Metal Printing Materials

Nickel alloy powder

The oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance of nickel alloy make it suitable for the harsh environment of high temperature and high pressure. When the nickel alloy is heated, a thick and stable oxide layer will be passivated on the surface of the alloy to protect the inside of the alloy from corrosion. Good mechanical properties are maintained over a wide temperature range.


Cobalt-chromium alloy powder

Because of its excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance, cobalt-chromium alloy powder for metal 3D printing is commonly used to print various artificial joints and orthopaedic implants, and it is also used in the field of dentistry.


Titanium alloy powder

It is widely used in the aerospace field. Using the advantages of 3D printing to help optimize product design, such as replacing the original solid body with a complex and reasonable structure, the finished product has lower weight and better mechanical properties. This can not only reduce costs, but also Lightweight production of each component can be achieved.


Copper alloy powder

With excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, copper with excellent thermal conductivity in thermal management applications can be combined with design freedom to produce complex internal structures and conformal cooling channels.


Stainless steel powder

Relatively cheap metal printing materials, cost-effective, good corrosion resistance, high strength, can quickly and efficiently manufacture small batches of complex industrial parts.
