In metal laser powder bed fusion with DMLS® technology, inert gases are used to shield the 
melt pool and avoid impurities and adverse 
reactions within ambient atmospheres. This also makes the process safer and delivers greater reproducibility and part quality

EOS and Linde combined their expertise to jointly undertake research in the field of additive manufacturing of this study was to investigate the influence of the oxygen concentration on the properties of AISi10Mg. The influence of impurities in the 
process gas on the quality of the additively manufactured material was analyzed, as well as the influence on the process itself.

This whitepaper provides insight into:

  • Processing of AlSi10Mg
  • Atmospheric monitoring and optimization with 
    Linde’s ADDvance® O2 precision
  • Use of EOSTATE Exposure OT with argon-helium process gas
