LPW Technology Ltd, Runcorn, UK, has released a new laboratory services datasheet examining the role of morphology in metal powder characterisation. The datasheet, titled ‘Quantitative shape analysis of metal powder samples by morphology’, is available via the company’s website.
“This datasheet explains the methodology of quantitative shape analysis and discusses the benefits of understanding powder morphology in the metal Additive Manufacturing process,” commented Lisa Holman, LPW’s Quality Engineer. “The testing we undertake delivers a comprehensive set of results, giving an effective overview of the powder’s characteristics that adds assurance about condition and consistency.”
‘Quantitative shape analysis of metal powder samples by morphology’ is the latest in a series of informative laboratory services datasheets, which LPW Technology Ltd plans to release on a monthly basis. Designed to describe the processes and benefits of each of the chemical and physical analysis techniques LPW offers for Additive Manufacturing, the series debuted with a datasheet on Karl Fischer Titration testing in April 2017.
