Freeman Technology releases application note on preparation and storage of AM feedstocks

August 18, 2020

Freeman Technology, a Micromeritics company based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK, has released a new application note ‘Preparation Techniques and Storage Conditions on the Flow Properties of Additive Manufacturing (AM) Feedstocks’.

The company explains that AM is rapidly gaining acceptance in a wide range of industries due to its ability to manufacture complex components quickly and precisely. 

As industrial implementation of the technology increases, so does the diversity of environmental and storage conditions which feedstocks are subjected to. This can significantly impact process performance and product quality states Freeman.

The new application note investigates the relationships between the flow properties of two batches of a stainless steel powder with varying particle sizes, and their preparation process and subsequent storage conditions. 

According to Freeman, the results demonstrate how different baking processes can influence flow properties that are known to affect Additive Manufacturing performance and also highlight how powders with different particle sizes respond differently to the same preparation and storage conditions.
