Angular Nd-Fe-B powders obtained through strip casting and jet milling were spheroidized by induction plasma under inert atmosphere. In a process optimization study, the impact of the powder feed rate on the sphericity was evaluated. The powder spheroidized with the optimized parameters showed a highly spherical shape and an excellent flowability, two characteristics that makes them suitable for AM.
