3D LAB presents a set of on-line applications for materials scientists from the metal powder 3D printing sector

3D Lab is one of the longest operating companies on the Polish 3D printing market, celebrating its 16th anniversary this year. A leading distributor of industrial 3D printers in the country, associated with 3D Systems for over a decade, a few years ago expanded its product portfolio with a proprietary machine for atomizing metal powders – ATO Lab. Now the company has launched a number of online applications on its new product page – a set of useful tools for materials scientists working in the metal alloy 3D printing environment.

The results of the atomization of metal powders are key data for materials scientists who are engaged in scientific research or design of components using metal powders. At metalatomizer.com, there are tools available that can be extremely helpful in these activities.

One of the key tools are reports presenting the results of atomization for individual materials using an ultrasonic atomizer of metal powders. Thanks to these reports, materials scientists can compare atomized powders with commercial powders available on the market. They contain detailed information on the physical and chemical properties of metal powders, such as morphology, particle size, chemical composition and purity. They can be used as a basis for evaluating potential applications of metal powders in various manufacturing processes or in scientific research.

Another tool is the interactive table of chemical elements, which allows you to check information about the elements (metals) from which, after appropriate preparation and mixing, alloys are prepared, which can then be atomized/processed into a metallic powder. This powder is later used as a building material, used in 3D printing in metals.

Users can also easily and quickly check the list of material groups, as well as learn about examples of powders that have been atomized so far. Thanks to this tool, materials scientists can learn more about the possibilities of using ultrasonic technology in the atomization of metals.

A valuable tool is the interactive graph (PSD) showing the results of atomization of metal powders using different ultrasonic frequency systems, using the example of 316L stainless steel subjected to the powdering/atomization process on available equipment. This graph shows experimental results and comparative analyzes for various ultrasonic frequencies in the particle size distribution of metal powders. In addition, the table contains information about technologies that use metal powders and their correlation with the ranges of particle distribution (PSD) for various ultrasonic frequencies. This tool allows materials scientists to better select the parameters for a specific powder metallurgy process using ultrasound and select the optimal frequency for their research or projects.

On the website itself, you can find a number of examples of metal powder applications in various industries, such as aviation, medicine or automotive. These case studies provide practical examples of how metal powders can be used in a variety of applications and what benefits can result from their use.

The new application package is complemented by the possibility of ordering a free sample of metal powder produced in ultrasonic technology. It is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the potential of this modern and until recently unavailable atomization technology and its applications in scientific works and projects as well as industrial implementations. It gives materials scientists the opportunity to assess the quality of metal powders and their suitability in their own research and projects, which can contribute to the further development of the field of materials science and innovative applications of metal powders.
