Quality control for additive manufacturing

Timely and accurate quality control is a prerequisite for modern additive manufacturing, as excessive or unknown variation in the metal feed powder can lead to non-uniform layering, increased defects, poor surface finish, and even catastrophic failures. The Thermo Scientific Phenom ParticleX AM Desktop Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is a versatile solution for high-quality analysis, giving you the ability to carry out quick verification and classification of materials.
