Additive Layer Manufacture, or 3D-printing, represents a step change in component design and supply chain resilience. However, the quality of the component and the financial viability of the process is dependent on the quality of the input material. For metal components the input material is metal powder with defined particle size and shape. This webinar will discuss the relevance of these properties to the additive manufacturing process and how to measure them using laser diffraction and optical imaging techniques.
