Freeman Technology, a powder flow specialist company headquartered in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK, is set to host a free seminar titled ‘Understanding Powders for Additive Manufacturing,’ taking place in Birmingham, UK, June 11, 2019.

The one-day event will reportedly provide an introduction to the principles of powder rheology and how the associated methodologies can be applied to understand and optimise Additive Manufacturing applications. The seminar will include presentations from Jamie Clayton, Operations Director at Freeman Technology, who will deliver an introduction to understanding and measuring powder flow and behaviour.

Delegates will also hear from industry experts on the challenges of powder handling processes. These will include:

  • Unlocking the Potential of Additive Manufacturing – Dr Jason Dawes, Technology Manager – Materials Engineering, The Manufacturing technology Centre (MTC)
  • Quantifying the Size and Shape of Metal Powders for Additive Manufacturing – Cathryn Langley, Product Manager, Malvern Panalytical
  • The Importance of Powder Rheometry to assess the Differences between Polymer Powders for Selective Laser Sintering – Enrico Gallino, Material Specialist, Ricoh

There will also be an opportunity for delegates to witness a demonstration of Freeman Technology’s FT4 Powder Rheometer®, and Malvern Panalytical’s Morphologi 4.
