The testing of 3D printed products created with metals and polymers, regardless of which 3D printing technology, is just as important as raw material testing, if not more. While the material is often certified in its raw state, there are materials that, through the printing process, may suffer an introduction of porosity, voids, powder residue blocking channels, contamination, cracking, and deformations, to name a few.
Among the many services in Element’s scope of expertise, we can provide metallurgy, NDT, porosity evaluation, SEM surface characterization, and chemistry testing and inspection to ensure that your metals 3D printed components are safe, perform to designed specification, and are free from material inconsistencies.
