Metal powder handling

Date: Tue May 11 1999 - 18:08:43 EEST

 I am currently investigating direct metal SLS, of a range of
particle sizes. However, trouble is being experienced during
re-coating, where the already sintered part is moving in the
powder bed as the roller + powder passes. Has other people
experienced such a problem? I have a few ideas to solve the problem
but i would be interested to here of anyone elses experiences.
