Integration, data management, material contamination and quality, or powder reuse and traceability are all barriers to success of serial production additive manufacturing. Driving innovative, partner-focused solutions, Carpenter Additive works in cooperation with customers to offer powder management and handling solutions specifically tailored to individual AM processes and facilities.
Operational considerations yield improvement in productivity and overall equipment effectiveness, material waste reduction, and environmental health and safety mitigation with large-scale powder usage. Carpenter Additive’s PowderLife was developed specifically with advanced AM users in mind looking to achieve a series of gains from their AM production program to drive sustainable improvements. The PowderLife solutions portfolio includes
PowderFlow enables the user to understand their powders and processes further through the measurement of flow of powder. The results enable the end user to determine if their powder will spread effectively throughout the build process in the AM machine.
A portable kit, PowderFlow enables the user to check powder flowability wherever and whenever it’s required. Gain a deeper understanding of powder and be confident in the quality of final build parts.
Not every project is standard. Beyond our PowderRange in-stock offerings, we can size powders and produce materials to meet individual specifications. From a single metal powder test to new alloy development, our experts design and develop novel metal alloys, atomized in-house, in partnership with you.
