This thin, gray metallic powder possess the properties on which a new, rapidly growing industry is built. Highly homogeneous metal powder is the basis for additive production — three-dimensional printing using metal. It consists of small perfectly round balls of 15 to 45 microns, which are obtained using labor-intensive technologies in a 13-meter complex installation. The SMS group has successfully commissioned a pilot plant developed by SMS Mevac for the production of powder at the industrial scale. Customers will get modular, scalable solutions according to their individual requirements. In addition, the SMS group concern guarantees reliable support of its customers along the entire chain of additive production through a network of maintenance and support points for hardware and software in many countries around the world. The new molten metal spraying plant for powders is an important milestone in creating a factory of the future for additive manufacturing.
