Recycling metal powders is critical to realising the cost benefits of additive layer manufacture of metal parts. This application note presents the technique of Automated Static Image Analysis of particles and why that’s important in the formation of the powder bed.

Additive layer manufacturing refers to the 3D printing process that can produce complex shapes from comparatively small amounts of raw material. For metal parts, the traditional method is subtractive manufacturing whereby a part is machined from a solid block of metal in a milling process. But, why is there so much interest in the additive technique?
