What is the most common powder used for 3D Printing on Metal?

Flowability: One of the most important characteristics for metal powder is the ability to flow through a 3D printer. The materials with better flowability are able manipulate more easily and produce more consistent layers and items. In addition, they are less likely items with uneven layers. The more fluidity of metal powder means that it is easier to create a 3D-printed product.

Stainless steel 316L powder

The powder of stainless steel 316L has been studied extensively for its effect on AM. It's a typical material which means that results can be extrapolated to other alloys. The powder's size distribution, as determined by the 4S approach, is 9.43 mm. This means that the shape factor (PSF) is near one. The powder's properties are summarized in Table 1.


The most commonly used metal alloy that is used to make 3D printing processes is titan. It is extremely durable and durable metal that is perfect for the production of functional parts or prototypes as well as other products for aerospace, military automobile, and aerospace applications. Titanium is also biocompatible . It is commonly used for medical implants.

The advantages for titanium are numerous The material is increasing in demand in additive manufacturing applications. It's close to half its weight as steel, and its unique characteristics are a great fit to print 3D models. Titanium is lightweight, heat-resistant and chemical-resistant. Additionally, it is biocompatible. One of its many strengths is that titanium is particularly helpful for automotive and aerospace industries when the size of the item is essential.


Niobium powder can be a wonderful material for 3D printing with metal because it is bio-inert and is simple to process. When it comes to additive manufacturing, it is employed to create niobium based alloys that can be used to fabricate aerospace parts as well as engines. The process is known as"laser-based (or laser) powder bedfusion (also known as SLM) which makes use of a laser to selectively melt the powder into metals.

Niobium is a chemically related metal that is chemically similar to tantalum. the melting temperatures are similar. They also share the same electrical and thermal conductivity. These properties make them well-suited in chemical process. In fact, they are frequently used in the construction of capacitors and many other electronic devices.
