Powder flow specialists, Freeman Technology, are continuing their webinar series with ‘Evaluating Process-Relevant Powder Properties for Additive Manufacturing Applications’. Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) is a potentially transformative, highly efficient manufacturing technique. It involves ‘printing’ often intricate components to a tight specification by gradually building up powder layers which are then selectively fused together.
This free webinar evaluates why controlling the performance of the powders is critical for process efficiency and end product quality. The webinar highlights various studies which have shown how the diverse and sensitive methodologies, provided by the FT4 Powder Rheometer, enable the detection of minor variations in feedstocks that directly influence performance in AM processes, in a way that traditional characterisation techniques cannot. Powder rheology can therefore support successful optimisation and lifecycle management of powders for AM.

- The evaluation of virgin and used feedstocks
- The influence of additives on polymer AM performance
- Quantifying batch-to-batch variation in feedstocks
