What type of powder is used to print 3D Metals?

Flowability. One of the main characteristics for powders made of metal is their potential to be flowable through the 3D printer. Materials with better flowability may be used more efficiently and produce better quality products and layers. Additionally, they are less likely to make products that have uneven layers. The more fluidity of metal powder means that it is more straightforward to manufacture a 3D product.

Stainless steel 316L powder

The stainless steel 316L powder has been thoroughly examined to understand its impact on AM. It is a representative metal that allows results to be applied to other alloys. The size distribution of the powder, as determined by the 4S process, is 9.43 mm. The shape of the particle (PSF) is in the vicinity of one. The powder's properties are summarized in Table 1.


The most commonly used metal alloy used during 3D printing , is the titanium. It is a very strong and durable metal that is well-suited for the manufacturing of functional parts prototypes, components, and other products for military, aerospace as well as automotive applications. Titanium is also biocompatible and is typically used for medical implants.

The benefits in titanium-based powders are many, and the material is increasing in demand in additive manufacturing. It's almost half that of the steel, and its unique characteristics can make it a perfect candidate when it comes to 3D printing. Titanium is extremely light, resistant to heat and chemically resistant, and is biocompatible. There are many benefits to titanium, titanium is especially helpful in automotive and aerospace applications when the size of an object is vital.


Niobium is an excellent material to use in 3D printing in metal because it is bio-inert and is easy to work with. In additive manufacturing, it is used to produce niobium compounds which can then be used for aerospace components and engines. This is known as"laser-based powder bed-fusion" (also called SLM) which uses a laser to selectively melt the powder to produce metals.

Niobium has a chemically similar metal with tantalum, and their melting points are similar. They also have the same thermal and electrical conductivity. These attributes make them perfect for processing chemical substances. In actuality, they are also used in the making of capacitors as well as other electrical devices.
