Influence of the atomization medium on the properties of Stainless Steel SLM parts

Pometon is proud to have supplied the water-atomized 316L Stainless Steel powders useful for Dr. Cacace's research - “Influence of the atomization medium on the properties of Stainless Steel SLM parts” - published in the magazine #Elsevier 

The results prove that  samples produced with the less expensive water atomized process show the same mechanical properties as samples printed using standard gas atomization.

Case study:
Metallic powders
in restoration

Metals powders are used in restoration, for example compounds containing iron powders are used in to fill gaps in oxidized ornamental iron work.

Examples of powders used in restorations are monuments: Church of Sant’Alvise Cannaregio Pozzo di Piazza Baldassarre Galuppi Burano - Venice 2018

Church of Sant'Alvise
Grate fissate al contorno in pietra, non rimovibili  
Integrazione dei vuoti con impasto di polvere di ferro  
Pozzo In Piazza Galuppi: coperchio ottocentesco in ferro battuto  
Restauro con integrazione di polvere di ferro e un polimero epossidico
