Powdered material should be handled and stored as for standard Titanium powders.
Different additive machines require different feedstock properties (particle size distribution and morphology). For MMTECH, partner MBN produced powders which could be used on blown powder machines and on powder bed systems.
MMTECH worked with the ERASMUS+ project, 3DPRISM, to provide information to their MOOC. The course includes information on AM systems, materials, and process parameters as well as giving training on CAD modelling for AM, basic maintenance and health and safety. 3DPRISM was a 27 month project funded through ERASMUS+ and coordinated by the AMRC at the University of Sheffield in partnership with Florida Universitaria, CECIMO, Exelia and Cimea.
