For manufacturers using powder bed fusion techniques, the price of metal powders is among the most scrutinized system components when it comes to cost control measures. But producers of metal powders for 3D printing have their own cost-efficiency challenges to contend with.
For cost-effective powder bed fusion, mixing technology is one piece of the puzzle. High-performance mixing equipment can help producers of metal powders for 3D printing ensure high quality materials and greater product yield, as well as make a meaningful contribution to the development of innovative powder reconditioning techniques.
This whitepaper from amixon GmbH examines common cost-efficiency challenges for both manufacturers and powder producers in the additive manufacturing space, and explores the role sophisticated mixing technology can play in improving the economic viability of this revolutionary production method for companies along the entire AM production chain.
