Want to know what your powder really looks like?

The Explorer 4 Additive automatically and simultaneously analyzes the most critical characteristics of powders used in metals additive manufacturing: size, shape and chemistry. For printed parts, the Explorer 4 Additive identifies, characterizes and quantifies surface porosity and inclusions. With both SE and BSE detectors, the Explorer 4 Additive has all the imaging capabilities you need for further investigations of powders, printed parts and fracture surfaces. Quantifying your powders for recycling, identifying foreign contaminants, and qualifying your printed parts has never been easier.



Do you require rapid development of thermoplastics and compounding for additive manufacturing?

Our lab-scale Thermo Scientific™ Process 11 Twin-Screw Extruder enables rapid experimentation and development of materials for additive manufacturing. Using only 20 grams up to 2.5 kg of material per hour, this compounding extruder is built for rapid clean-up and quick turnaround times. Processing parameters seamlessly scale up to larger systems. Also ideal for small-scale production runs.
