Particle Sizing in Additive Manufacturing Powders: SPOS vs. Laser Diffraction Comparison

Join this new webinar presented by Mark Bumiller of Entegris titled, Particle Sizing in Additive Manufacturing Powders: SPOS vs. Laser Diffraction Comparison. 

About this webinar

Additive manufacturing (AM), or three-dimensional (3D) printing can be performed using various materials including liquid resins, polymers, and powder metals. When using polymers and metal powders, the particle size distribution is important for processability and final part quality. The powder particles act as building blocks, and their size affects the packing density, surface area, and flowability of the powder bed.

A variety of particle size analysis techniques can be used to determine the powder size distribution, including laser diffraction and single particle optical sizing (SPOS). This webinar will explain the advantages and disadvantages of both techniques and provide examples of results and data interpretation.
