How can I make a new powder for my metal 3D printer?

Today on the market there are several thousand different metallic materials available. However, only about 30 of them are used for metal 3D printing. New alloys appear slowly because a lot of resources are needed to develop the proper feedstock – powder with custom chemical composition.

To solve this problem we have created a closed-loop R&D system for spherical powder production. Together with DMLS printers at Warsaw University of Technology, it makes an integrated ecosystem for new AM materials.
