Argon for Additive
Manufacturing

The quintessential inert gas in metal additive manufacturing process.

The inert gas par excellence 

Noble gas is 1.38 times heavier than air and has a low ionisation energy. Its density determines the ability to protect the melting pool generated in 3D printing processes and promotes its management in the printing chamber (PBF process).

It is adequate for all types of metal, ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Nitrogen fo Additive manufacturing
Under normal conditions nitrogen is an inert gas but which at high temperatures can react with some materials also used in 3D printing. In 3D printing, nitrogen is mainly used for processing austenitic steels.

Helium for Additive manufacturing
Helium is an absolutely inert and very light gas. Its chemical and physical characteristics make it ideal for both PBF and DED 3D printing processes, but it is very rare and expensive, so it is mainly used in EBM processes given the low gas consumption that this process has. In DED processes it is often used mixed with other gases.
