 The Takeaways from Additive Manufacturing, a Powder Metallurgical Perspective


Keith Murray

Sandvik Materials Technology

Sandvik has been involved in the additive manufacturing industry since its inception. As Business Development Manager – Powders, Keith Murray has had extensive experience of developing, in collaboration with customers, a diverse range of alloy systems for additive manufacturing applications across a wide range of industries.


The past 3-4 years has seen a transition in the use of Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) techniques from prototyping to series production. There remain a number of technical challenges that need to be resolved in order to increase adoption of the technology across a wider range of markets, both in terms of the process technology itself as well as consumable metal powders

The talk will provide an overview of the current AM technological landscape for metals before going on to examine a number of the current material challenges including, powder characterisation, alloy design and optimisation and powder recycling.
