Freeman Technology has announced that ASM International recently adopted the FT4 Powder Rheometer for metal powder testing. Designed to characterise the flow properties of powders, the FT4 Rheometer is also able to test shear strength, along with bulk properties such as density, compressibility and permeability.

ASM International is described as “the world’s largest and most established materials information society,” an organisation connecting a global network of members to facilitate the transfer of content, data and research. The organisation also offers a variety of educational training courses on many topics and, where appropriate, incorporates dynamic powder testing into its courses to further educate industrial users.

Both organisations stated that this collaboration will support greater use of the FT4 Rheometer to improve the manufacture and use of metal powders across a range of industries.
