Testing and characterising metal 3D printing
What is a “test piece”
It is a “sample” part, which may have standardised geometries or not, according to your requirements.
You can entrust us with your test piece model.
We also have models at your disposal, which can be used.
Thanks to these parts, you can easily conduct the analyses you need, depending on the chosen material and layer thickness.
Testing mechanical properties
Each type of test piece has a geometry to be adhered to depending on the test (tensile, compression, shear, bending, fatigue, impact resistance and hardness tests). In this way, we are able to tell whether the material meets your expectations in terms of mechanical strength and for a given application.
Depending on the circumstances, we are also able to consult our database to find out whether our material complies with your specifications.
Testing chemical compositionsmass production 3D printing
The chemical composition and chemical homogeneity of materials are useful in assessing their contamination, as well as the composition of alloys.
Depending on the quality of testing expected, you can use different analysis methods, including microscopy or spectroscopy.
A look at R&D and the creation of our reference part
For 20 years, Initial by Prodways has been expanding its metal sintering expertise thanks to the wide variety of parts we produce and the multitude of sectors in which we operate.
As a result, we are able to develop our own tools, which further advance our mastery of the process for producing your parts.
Thanks to the design of our own Artefact, we are able to safeguard production in order to anticipate the variations inherent to machines and thereby guarantee the quality of production.
