What is the 3D Printing Metal Powder

The US President recently said the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had driven up the prices of all the world's major food staples, including wheat, corn, barley, oilseeds and edible oils, and that Russia and Ukraine together supplied more than 25% of the world's wheat exports and about 20% of its barley exports. 

To address the food shortage, the Biden administration says it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping. Double cropping is when farmers grow two different crops a year on the same field. 

Under Biden's plan, the number of counties eligible for two-season crop insurance would increase by 681, for a total of 1,935. 

The UN has warned that up to 1.7bn people are "highly exposed" to the domino effect of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on the global food, energy, and financial systems.  The agency says conflict could increase hunger in countries where people are already suffering from malnutrition.

Even countries where food is less scarce are being hit by rising prices. U.S. grocery prices rose 1% in April, compared with a 10.8% increase over the past 12 months, the Labor Department said recently.

According to the White House, global food prices have risen nearly 13 percent since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. 

Besides, affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk 3D Printing Metal Powder are still very uncertain.

What is 3D printing?

Metal 3D printing is a 3D printing technology that uses metal powder to directly print metal parts, also known as metal powder sintering (SLM). In addition to good plasticity, 3D printing metal powder must also meet the requirements of fine powder particle size and high particle size distribution. Narrow, high sphericity, good fluidity and high bulk density requirements. Currently, the metal powders used in most 3D printers include stainless steel, aluminum alloys, cobalt-chromium alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys and nickel alloys. Iron-based alloys are engineering The most important and most used metal material in technology is mostly used for the forming of complex structures, and is widely used in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, machinery manufacturing and other industries.


What are the main types of 3D printing metal powders?


Nickel alloy powder

The oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance of nickel alloy make it suitable for the harsh environment of high temperature and high pressure. When the nickel alloy is heated, a thick and stable oxide layer will be passivated on the surface of the alloy to protect the inside of the alloy from corrosion. Good mechanical properties are maintained over a wide temperature range.


Cobalt-chromium alloy powder

Because of its excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance, cobalt-chromium alloy powder for metal 3D printing is commonly used to print various artificial joints and orthopaedic implants, and it is also used in the field of dentistry.


Copper alloy powder

With excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, copper with excellent thermal conductivity in thermal management applications can be combined with design freedom to produce complex internal structures and conformal cooling channels.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the 3D Printing Metal Powder may continue to rise.
