The DNA of powder material
Powder Genetics® is an IABG invented powder characterization procedure for metal and ceramic powder material. With the performance of four investigation methods at a small amount of powder (20 – 50g), elementary powder properties are both qualitatively and quantitatively obtained.
All methods are interdependent which allows cross connections of characteristic properties for correlation purposes.
Powder Genetics® is the holistic approach of a sustainable powder characterization due to the reliability of the results and the transferability to the manufacturing process. Included within an AM data base, Powder Genetics® is the foundation for optimization, correlation and stabilization purposes within the value chain of additive manufacturing.
