We produce metal powders of the highest quality from known or individually alloyed materials in a TÜV-certified process chain for metal 3D-printing.
The Atomiser AU 3000 from BluePower Casting Systems was developed for the fast and economical production of small quantities of high-quality metal powders up to about 50 kg. Compared to large production systems, frequent alloy changes are also possible without cross-contamination.
With crucible-based system, argon hot gas flow and the close-coupled atomizer, liquid metal becomes spherical metal powder for additive manufacturing processes in the atomization chamber.
With our processing systems, we can optimize the metal powders for metal 3D-printing by air classification, sieving and drying.
The quality of the metal powder used is crucial for high reproducibility in the additive manufacturing process. Characteristic features here are, for example, the particle size distribution, the particle shape and the residual moisture. These have a decisive influence on the bulk density and flowability of the metal powder. The energy input of the laser, which depends on the metal powder, has a direct effect on the material structure and the functional properties of the component. Comprehensive quality assurance with subsequent processing is necessary to control the parameters mentioned and for additive manufacturing of high-quality components with good mechanical-technological properties.
In our modern and extensively equipped laboratory, the metal powders can be fully analyzed.

SLM Solutions Group AG, a leading supplier of systems for metal 3D-printing, has agreed a cooperation with Rosswag as well as with the recycling company CRONIMET. The goal of the cooperation is to provide customers with efficient access to new powder materials for the further industrialization of additive manufacturing technologies.
In the 3d printing process a wide variety of metals can be used. Examples include but are not limited to steel, stainless steel, Q&T Steel, aluminum, copper, titanium, nickel-based alloys and precious metals such as platinum. Rosswag produces more than 400 different metal powders and can also qualify new ones for your company.
The 3d printing metal powder size ranges from fine powder (approximately 15-53μm) to coarse powder (approximately 53-105μm). Typically, the optimal size of your 3d printing metal powder depends on the energy source the metal printer utilizes.
There are various validreasons why powdered metal in 3d printing is so popular: the use of metal powder shortens the production times as well as improves the quality and accuracy of the final product. Metal 3d printing powder is also appropriate for various applications such as customizations in manufacturing. Over time, the use of powdered metal is known to cut project costs compared to other traditional manufacturing processes. For more info regarding 3d metal printing powder check our link!
Power Bed Fusion (PBF), Power Bed Melting or simply 3D printing is an additive manufacturing method. It is the most commonly used method of 3d printing. By using a high-energy heat source, layers of powdered metal are fused together to create a 3-dimensional object. Layer for layer of metal powder on top to create desired object. It makes for an efficient way to reduce waste and fasten production times for customized objects. Selective Laser Melting SLM is a subset of PBF. In other words, it is a specific Type of PBF, that uses a high-powered laser to melt the metal powder. Hence, it is widely used in the aerospace, automotive, medical and manufacturing industries.
