Nitrogen for Additive

The inert gas that can become active.

Cheap but difficult to use 

Under normal circumstances (temperature and pressure), this gas is inert, and when subject to high temperatures, it can become active influencing the result. It is usually used in the PBF 3D printing process, exclusively for stainless steel products. It is also used for the inerting of metal powders in the storage phase.

The use of nitrogen is often relegated solely to the processing of stainless steel powder

Argon voor additive manufacturing
Dankzij zijn chemisch-fysische eigenschappen is Argon een veelgebruikt gas in de additive manufacturing processen. Het wordt voornamelijk gebruikt voor materialen die zeer reactief zijn met zuurstof of andere luchtcomponenten.

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.
