Data for Investigating the Effect of Metal Powder Recycling in Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion using Process Log Data

Document Type


Publication Date




This archive contains log file data that was generated by the Arcam A2 Electron Beam Melting (EBM) (R) system during the build process of different builds. The purpose of the builds was to study the effect of recycling of metal powder on the chemical composition, flowability and size characteristics of powder. A detailed exposition of findings from the study is available in reference [1]. The powders studied were Inconel 718 and Ti-6Al-4V alloy powders. The original log file data generated by Arcam EBM has been pruned to include only parameters described in the "Column header description" section of this file.
