3D printing represents a new form of printing technology. 3D printing metal powder, the most important material for 3D-printing metal parts, is 3D printing. The main 3D powder materials currently available are

nickel-titanium alloy powder

Steel, stainless, industrial, steel, cobaltchromium alloys, bronze alloys, titanium alloys, nickel-aluminum alloys, etc.

3D printing of metal powder requires good plasticity.

Three types of preparation for 3D printing metal powder are available: reduction method, electrolysis, grinding method, and atomization method. Two of the most common pulverizing techniques in China today are the argon-atomization method or plasma rotating electrode.

1. Argon atomization

Argon atomization is a powder-making method that uses the fast-flowing argon gases flow to impact the metallic liquid, break it up into fine particles and then condense to make a solid powder.

2. Plasma rotating electrode method

Plasma state is also known as the fourth state. The process of plasma rotating electro atomization (prep) is simple: The metal or alloy is made into a consumable electrode. The end of consumable electrode melts in coaxial plasma heating source to create liquid film. The liquid film is then thrown out at high speeds to form droplets. Under the action shear stress, the molten liquid dropslet cools and solidifies under the surface tension.

These are some of the benefits of plasma rotating electrode metal powder:

High sphericity with a smooth surface and high loose densities, which means that the uniformity of powder spread is excellent and printing products have a high density.
