Key to Quality: Gases from Linde

As with all manufacturing processes, the quality of the end product greatly depends on the properties of the base material and the precision of the machinery. Process gases also play a vital role in additive manufacturing outcomes and are involved in every step of the AM fabrication chain. Our expertise spans the entire AM value chain - from metal powder production and handling through 3D printing (based on metal powder in particular) to post-production processing .

Our industrial and specialty gases, bespoke gas mixtures, innovative application technologies, groundbreaking control and monitoring equipment and gas supply solutions are giving customers new-found freedom of design for lightweight 3D-printed parts offering greater structural stability and sophisticated surface textures.
