The use of gas in additive manufacturing throughout the value chain: powder atomisation and storage, additive manufacturing, cryogenic cleaning, heat treatments
Stéphanie TROUSSELLE, Markets and Applications Manager, LINDE France S.A.







Additive manufacturing does not start nor end in a bed of powder. It is a long process where all the steps are linked: from the powder production to the additive manufacturing, without forgetting the post-treatment processes. The aim is to obtain a final result meeting all the requirements. Gases represent an integral component that plays a role in each of these applications.
