New animation from Freeman Technology

provides an easy to understand illustration of the

mechanisms of powder flow

Powder characterisation specialist Freeman Technology, based in Tewkesbury, UK, has updated its website with a number of practical resources aimed at engineers, formulators and researchers working in both the metal powders and Additive Manufacturing industries. The website now includes animation that provides an insight into the testing required for improved powder characterisation as well as the company’s eBook series, covering the fundamentals of powder behaviour and testing.

The way in which powders behave defines their processability, and in many applications their value. The new animation clearly illustrates the wide range of variables that can influence powder flow and how Freeman Technology’s FT4 Powder Rheometer can be used to investigate their impact. The resulting data enables sensitive QC/QA, more efficient powder processing, and effective troubleshooting.

All three of Freeman Technology’s educational eBooks on the fundamentals of powder behaviour and characterisation are also now available for download. The first ‘An Introduction to Powders’, complements the animation with a detailed discussion of powder behaviour and the factors that influence it.

The second and third ‘Choosing a Powder Tester’ and ‘The Value of Powder Testing’, discuss how to identify the best tester for an industrial application and justify the associated investment. Powder testers vary considerably in terms of their industrial relevance and ability to deliver value and this can have a major influence on the return on investment associated with their purchase.

All three eBooks can be accessed here 

Finally, the extensive literature section of the website has also been updated. This database provides expert information on powder characterisation for all industries, and includes a wide range of published articles, conference papers and white papers. Its ongoing development underlines Freeman Technology’s commitment to understanding powder behaviour and to providing powder processors with up-to-date, relevant information to tackle and solve manufacturing problems.
