The quality of laser beam melting (LBM) components is naturally influenced by the quality of the powder bed. The low packing density and the porosity inside the powder particles lead to intrinsic voids. Since the packing density is determined by the particle size and shape distribution, these properties need to be precisely determined. The size and shape distribution, the amount of particle intrinsic porosity, and the packing density of powder for LBM were determined using synchrotron X-ray computed tomography. A robust workflow for particle segmentation was presented according to which a high particle anisotropy leads to a small interparticle distance. View this paper.
