Attend LPW Carpenter Additive’s Interactive ‘Powder Degradation Study’ Workshop at the 2019 AMUG Conference

At the 2019 AMUG Conference in Chicago, LPW Carpenter Additive’s Application Engineer, Nate Kistler, will be hosting a workshop to help metal AM users plan how to design their own powder degradation study, to optimise metal powder usage in AM builds. The workshop will be held in the Hilton Chicago’s Marquette Room on Tuesday, April 2nd, from 1.30pm-2.30pm.

The interactive session, “Designing a Powder Degradation Study”, aims to help the participants to understand how to undertake a powder degradation study that is customizable to each user’s AM needs. Additionally, the presentation will share useful information and findings from internal studies on powder degradation, powder recycling, and the economic benefits of understanding the link between part mechanical properties and powder degradation.

It would be useful to bring a laptop or tablet into this workshop if you’d like to engage in real-time with the Excel-based interactive powder study template designed for customising individual powder usage. If you are interested in learning how powder degradation affects your AM processes, please join us for this practical workshop.

Webinar announcement – AM metal powder evolution and its impact on additive manufacturing production

AM metal powder evolution

LPW and UL are bringing together a team of experienced AM practitioners to discuss the impact of metal powder evolution and the potential for material reuse in production AM.

As the manufacturing landscape for powder bed AM shifts from R&D and prototyping to serial production, more focus is being placed on the reuse of powder.

However, metal powder is not infinitely reusable, and there have already been a number of investigations which demonstrate that powder will evolve with repeated reuse.

In this webinar we explore the mechanisms which drive powder evolution and present results from some of LPW’s own powder evolution investigations. Looking across the industry, we review the range of work conducted on powder evolution by other investigators and summarise how powder evolution differs across materials and platforms.

Topics:

  • Mechanisms which drive powder evolution
  • Results from 718 evolution study
  • Introduction of new metric for powder evolution
  • Impact of chemistry variance in virgin powder
  • Factors effective powder evolution
  • Observed defects in powder
  • Review of powder evolution studies
