Carnegie Mellon researchers identify suitable 3D printing alloys with new rapid screening method

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have designed a rapid screening method for new 3D printing alloys. The method allows users to quickly understand and develop correlations between process variables and alloy composition. (l-r) Titanium boron (Ti-B) alloy before and after it is refined by an additive manufacturing laser pass Creating new metal powders for additive manufacturing can be a slow and laborious process. Because despite the countless number of metals and alloys out there, relatively few of these materials possess the right physical properties for being turned into powder and then sintered, melted, or jetted. Designing a new alloy […]
