NSL Additive Manufacturing Article Preview
The surface area of particles in metal powders is affected by particle size, shape, roughness and porosity. Even spherical gas atomised metal powders exhibit surface areas much higher than suggested by their size. Dr. van der Wiel discusses this topic in his article in Powder Metallurgy Review Magazine. Plus, he also explains why the knowledge and use of powder surface area is a critical parameter in the metal Additive Manufacturing process.
