What are the Advantages of Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder for 3D Printing
Russia and Ukraine is an important exporters of oil, natural gas, metals, fertilizers, rare gases and other industrial raw materials. Affected by the further intensification of the tension of the war, the global market has become more worried about the supply of the Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder, and panic spreads in the futures market. Prices of commodities such as aluminum and nickel are at recent highs on concerns that supplies will fall. Russia accounts for 49 percent of global exports of nickel, 42 percent of palladium, 26 percent of aluminum and 13 percent of platinum, and is a significant exporter of steel and copper. Palladium is an important metal for sensors and memory. In addition, Russia is the world's largest exporter of nitrogen fertilizer, the second largest exporter of potash fertilizer, and the third-largest exporter of phosphate fertilizer. Ukraine is also an important producer of nitrogen fertilizer. Russia's natural gas supply also has a significant impact on the global fertilizer industry and Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder industry, especially in Europe. The price of the Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder will also fluctuate to some extent. Russia carries out crude gas separation, and Ukraine is responsible for refined exports. Ukraine supplies 70% of the world's neon, 40% of krypton and 30% of xenon. These three gases are the materials used to make chips.
As a typical representative of refractory metal carbides, spherical tungsten
carbide powder is suitable for 3D printing and can produce higher quality
cemented carbide products.
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the latest rapid
prototyping device using technologies such as light curing and paper lamination.
The biggest difference from ordinary printers is that the printing material can
be liquid or solid powder. With the development of science and technology and
the needs of popularization and application, the use of rapid direct prototyping
to manufacture metal functional parts has become the main development direction
of rapid prototyping.
Compared with traditional production methods, additive manufacturing
technology has the characteristics of shorter production cycle, higher product
precision, and individualization. In addition to being suitable for the
manufacture of rapid prototyping small batch non-standard parts and
heterogeneous material assemblies, metal 3D printing is also suitable for
forming traditionally difficult parts, such as carbide tools, molds, structural
parts, geological mining tools, etc.
Cemented carbide is an alloy material produced by powder metallurgy with
tungsten carbide as the hard phase and cobalt, nickel, iron, copper and other
metal elements as the bonding phase. It has high melting point, high strength,
high hardness, good Red hardness, wear resistance, high temperature resistance
and other characteristics, so it is widely used in extreme environments such as
high temperature, high pressure, and high impact. However, alloys have very poor
machinability due to their high hardness and high melting point.
The researchers used 3D printing technology to manufacture cemented carbide,
which can effectively solve the problems of fracture, expansion and deformation
of products made by traditional production methods. However, additive
manufacturing technology has high requirements on the comprehensive performance
of raw materials, and spherical tungsten carbide powder must be used, because it
has the advantages of smooth surface, uniform particle size distribution, and
high fluidity, which is the premise of smooth powder feeding and uniform powder
distribution for 3D printers.

Southern Copper Corp (SCCO.N) recently said its Peruvian mine remained closed after a six-week standoff with protesters and blamed the Peruvian government for failing to intervene in the safety of its 1,300 workers and their families.
The company said in a statement that a recent agreement to end protests at the Cuajone mine required the company to withdraw complaints against protest leaders because railways transporting minerals and supplies remained blocked. Production has been suspended since the end of February.
Peru's Energy Ministry said in a separate statement that it had also reached an agreement with Southern Copper to start talks to find common ground with local communities.
"If we shut down for a year, the government will stop receiving more than 3.1 billion soles ($830 million) in taxes and royalties, and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be lost. This is what we want to avoid, "Southern Copper added in the statement.
Peru has faced a wave of protests from indigenous communities, who accuse mining companies of not providing enough jobs and funding to poor local residents.
Central bank officials said last week that protests against copper mines such as MMG's Las Bambas and Southern Copper's Cuajone were dragging down the economy.
Peru is the world's second-largest copper producer and mining is an important source of tax revenue for the country. It is estimated that the supply and prices of the Spherical Tungsten Carbide Powder will be influenced by that.
