High Performance Polymeric Powders and Nanocomposite Powders for Powder Bed Fusion

In this webinar, Professor Oana Ghita from University of Exeter discusses the challenges of producing High Performance Polymeric (HPP) powders for Additive Manufacturing (AM), presenting data for typical feedstocks and introducing corresponding nanocomposites.

Producing HPP powders AM is difficult due to the toughness of the materials. Milling is primarily used to produce HPP powders at scale but the morphology of the resulting particles can negatively affect flow and spreadability. The inclusion of additives such as fibres and nanoparticles is also attracting significant interest due to the functionalities they can impart, however, producing and handling such composites presents additional challenges.

This talk presents analysis of particle morphology and flow behaviour of typical HPP powders and their corresponding nanocomposites.
