Custom Characterisation of 3D Printed Materials in the Electron Microscope

Date: This event took place on October 17, 2018

Custom webcast sponsor retains sole responsibility for content.

3D printing enables the fast production of high quality, bespoke components. When this technique is applied in the production of metals and alloys it opens new possibilities in many areas as diverse, as biomedicine, automotive and aerospace manufacturing.

In this webcast, the speakers examine the role of electron microscopy as a powerful tool within the 3D printing process.  They demonstrate how to control the cleanliness of powder feedstock using automated particle classification (with energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry, EDS) as well as ensuring the quality of finished components using microstructural characterisation with electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). In particular they illustrate the potential of 3D microanalysis using a focused ion beam scanning electron microscope.

This webcast will help participants:

  • Understand the potential for electron microscopy and microanalysis to controlling  the 3D printing process
  • Recognise the impact of recent developments in EDS and EBSD detector technology
  • Experience the ease and benefit of microstructural analysis in 3D
