An Automated Image Analysis of the Differing Metal Powder Shapes Created By Various Atomization Processes

Malvern Instruments

The production of complex-shaped metal parts via Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a heavily expanding industry, and the characteristics of the metal powders used play an active role in determining the properties and efficiency of the MIM parts.

Spherical particles are generally favored by MIM manufacturers when aiming to achieve the highest tolerance levels and physical properties in final components.

This document describes how atomized powders with similar particle size distributions produced by two different atomizing processes, can have very different shape properties, and how such parameters can be assessed using automated image analysis.
