BENEFITS OF NITROGEN IN 3D METAL PRINTING AND ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

In recent years we are witnessing an actual industrial revolution, both in the field of prototyping and in mechanics.

A laser sintering process for metals performed by a sophisticated 3D laser printer can reproduce extremely complex metal elements and this is often impossible to achieve even with NC machine tools. With this industrial process, one can pass from the design to the finished piece in a very short time, hours for simple pieces and a couple of days for more complex ones.

The mechanical strength of the pieces made is comparable to elements that have been mechanically forged and machined. These are not experimental materials or lab tests, but industrial productions that fully meet the needs of sectors such as spare parts, pharmaceuticals, medical protheses, automotive, space components, sports competitions, etc.

Isolcell nitrogen generators meet the needs of this sector, making users independent from gas suppliers.

NITROGEN AS AN ALLY GAS IN ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Nitrogen is one of the main gases in additive manufacturing processes and in 3D laser printing with sintered materials.
