The method will cover the determination of particle size and shape distributions of metal and ceramic additive manufacturing base materials using dynamic imaging analyzers
additive manufacturing; particle shape; particle size
Particle size and shape of base materials affect the flowability of the powder and the quality of manufactured parts. Imaging technology can assess both these parameters at the manufacturing stage in order to optimize both size and shape for the end user.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
