How to store 3D printing powder

wallpapers News 2021-01-22
Titanium is an active metal, and its physical and chemical properties are quite different from conventional metals; for 3D printing, titanium alloy powder storage, processing, product post-processing, and other links. Technicians should do a good job of personal safety protection and select appropriate processing parameters.

Storage of 3D printing powder
3D metal printing powder special vacuum storage equipment is suitable for anti-oxidation storage of various metal powders. Through vacuum oxygen isolation, it can prevent oxidation, discoloration, and moisture and ensure the printing effect. Store in a dry environment at room temperature. Avoid humidity and high temperature. Use immediately after opening the inner packaging bag. These three points apply to the preservation of 3D printing powder. You can also buy a special 3D printing powder collection device. This device is also a national patent. It includes a powder scraping station. The left and right side walls of the powder scraping table are fixed with first collection grooves whose upper ends are opened, and the front side walls of the powder scraping table are fixed with second collection grooves whose upper ends are opened.
Precautions for the use of 3D printing titanium alloy powder
The first is powder storage. Titanium alloy powder is flammable and explosive. It should be stored away from fire, direct sunlight and sealed at room temperature and in a dry environment. The storage environment needs to be equipped with D-type fire extinguishers to prevent emergencies. If the powder is not stored properly and the fluidity is affected due to moisture, the powder can be put in a vacuum drying oven and heated to 80°C for one hour. After cooling to normal temperature, sieve again to restore its fluidity. The second is personal safety protection. The fine metal powder is easily harmful to human health. For operational safety and physical health, the following protections are recommended in any contact with powder: wear plastic gloves to prevent skin contact with powder; wear a dust mask with protection level above N95; where dust and static electricity Flame-retardant overalls; protective glasses and safety helmets are required for equipment maintenance and powder screening operations.
