What Powder is Used for Metal 3D Printing

What is the best powder for 3D printing on metal?

Flowability. One of the main characteristics for metal powder is its ability to flow through a 3D printer. Materials that have higher flowability are able to be more easily controlled and create more uniform layers and products. Additionally, they are less likely pieces with irregular layers. A higher flowability for metal powder is a reason why it's much easier to make a 3D-printed product.

Steel 316L powder Stainless

The stainless steel 316L powder has been thoroughly studied to determine its impact on AM. It is a representative metal, so results can be applied to other alloys. The distribution of size of the powder, according to the 4S method is 9.43 millimeters. The shape of the particle (PSF) is near one. The powder's properties are summarized in Table 1.


The most common metal alloy that is used during 3D printing process is called titanium. It is an extremely strong and durable metal that is perfect for the production of functional parts prototypes, components, and other products for aerospace, military and automotive applications. Titanium is also biocompatible and is typically used for medical implants.

The advantages of titanium powder are many and it is becoming more popular in additive manufacturing applications. It's nearly half more weight and weight that steel, and its unique properties are a great fit when it comes to 3D printing. Titanium is light, heat-resistant, and chemical-resistant, and is biocompatible. Of all its qualities, titanium is especially helpful in automotive and aerospace industries that require weight. the item is essential.


Niobium powder is a fantastic material to use in 3D printing using metal since it is bio-inert and easy to process. In additive manufacturing, it's utilized to create niobium alloys that can be used to make aerospace parts and engines. This process is known as"laser-based (or laser) powder bedfusion (also called SLM) which uses a laser to selectively melt the powder into metals.

Niobium is a chemically similar material to tantalum. Their melting point is similar. They also share similar thermal and electrical conductivity. This makes them ideal as chemical processors. In actuality, they are extensively used in the fabrication of capacitors and various electrical gadgets.
