For an excellent result of 3D printed products, the powder must be dry and free of foreign particles. GIEBEL Adsorbers® help to dry and filter the incoming air. This produces the best printing results.
The use of aluminum in 3D printing is particularly suitable for components that must be resistant to heat and stress, such as functional prototypes, mechanical components for the automotive sector or aerospace.
The aluminum alloy, which is available in powder form, is melted locally by a laser beam and thus built up layer by layer to form the structure to be produced. It is melted at the point of processing, creating a surface free of pores and cracks. Aluminum components produced by 3D printing manufacturing have better mechanical properties than those produced by the conventional casting process. This is due to the high cooling rates during the printing process.
