White Paper: The Use of Computer- Controlled Scanning Electron Microscopy for Powder Metal Characterization and Contamination Identification

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is quickly becoming an industry standard for product manufacturing in a variety of applications, including medical devices, aviation and aeronautics parts, and transportation components. The metal powders used in these products have introduced a wide range of questions for experts, who must determine whether the feedstock material is appropriate and sufficiently free of contamination for a specific end-use.

But how does one determine if a metal powder is sufficiently pure enough for use in critical applications like aerospace or automotive manufacturing? More and more, research engineers are looking to electron microscopy to determine if a metal powder will make the grade. This white paper explores how electron microscopy is becoming a standard tool for high tech manufacturers.

In this white paper you will learn:
  • Why metal characterization is important for metal additive manufacturing.
  • How electron microscopy can help improve the overall quality of additive manufacturing performance.
  • About the most common applications for electron microscopy metal characterization.
