Metallurgical expertise on metal parts from additive manufacturing
Industrialists in the field of metallurgy, you wish to assess your parts resulting from additive manufacturing?
First of all, what is additive manufacturing?
Additive manufacturing is a production process that consists of adding material by stacking successive layers of powdered materials (metal, plastic or composite). These powders are then fused by a beam (laser or electrons for example).
This manufacturing process makes it possible to produce unique and complex parts. This is why it is used in many applications in very demanding markets such as aeronautics, medical, space, defence, etc.
Why appraise your metal parts resulting from additive manufacturing?
Assessing your metal parts resulting from additive manufacturing is an essential step in the optimisation of your parts. Indeed, due to their manufacturing process, the quality of parts produced by additive manufacturing depends on several factors, in particular
- quality of the powders used
- size and shape of the particles
- the metallurgical state
- density (true, apparent and tapped)
- chemical composition, etc.
Thus, the expertise of your parts allows you to know them better and thus, better understand the associated failures.
