Powder Testing for Additive Manufacturing discussed in new blog

July 13, 2020

Freeman Technology, a Micromeritics company based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK, reports that Jamie Clayton, the company’s Operations Director has published a blog on ‘Powder Testing for Additive Manufacturing: Precise Characterisation for an Exacting Application’ as part of Freeman’s Powder Flow Insights series.

The blog looks at the importance of bulk powder testing for AM applications and what has been learned about specifying materials for this still relatively new manufacturing technique.

Freeman explains that over the last decade, it has become clear that the processes involved in Additive Manufacturing are exacting in terms of which materials will process efficiently. At the same time, understanding of how to identify powders that will additively manufacture well has grown. 

The company explains that its FT4 Powder Rheometer can play a defining role in the testing of many AM powders, including metals, polymers, ceramics and even pharmaceutical formulations.

The blog is available to read here.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
