High-performance powder manufacturing equipment for additive manufacturing (AM)

Additive Manufacturing

Mitsubishi Power’s gas nozzle achieves high-precision modeling.

Fine grain size powder is critical for ensuring high shape accuracy in AM applications. Mitsubishi Power has applied the AM technology to create a unique structure for the gas nozzle, the heart of its powder manufacturing equipment, thus improving fine powder yield.

Outline

The unique structure of the gas nozzle, the heart of AM metal powder manufacturing equipment, has reduced powder grain size and improved powder yield rates.

Applications

Small-lot production of micro-fine metal powders such as Ni/Co-based heat-resistant alloys, Cu-based powders and Fe-based powders.
