Using Coarser Powder for SLM
How does the use of coarser powder in SLM influence the component and material properties?
Challenge and Motivation
- Powder costs have a large share on component costs.
- According to the state of the art grain size in the range 15-60 μm is used for SLM.
- Production of coarser powder particles has potential for saving powder production costs.
- Influence of coarser powder on component and material properties hast to be investigated.
