Additive Manufacturing/3D Metal Printing
A 3D Printing Masterpiece made
better with the proper gas atmosphere.

In the world of rapid prototyping and production of metal components, it is imperative to have the proper gas atmosphere to produce quality parts. To meet the high-tolerance standards required in 3D printing, Argon and Nitrogen are commonly used to provide inert atmospheres.

At Air Products, we have extensive applications knowledge in surface/bulk treatment of metals to help additive manufacturers optimize the gas selection, supply mode, and purity for improved part processing.

TurboCam uses our argon to optimize the 3D printing processTo better understand how we’ve helped customers and how we can help you, check out how TurboCam is using our Argon to optimize their 3D printing process. You may also find our online tools and “Ask the Expert” material helpful.
