Free Webinar: Evaluating Process-Relevant Powder Properties for 3D Printing

Powder flow specialist, Freeman Technology, will continue its webinar series with “Evaluating Process-Relevant Powder Properties for Additive Manufacturing Applications” on November 26 at 11am Eastern. 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.

Jamie Clayton, operations director at Freeman Technology, will evaluate why controlling the performance of the powders is critical for process efficiency and end product quality. The webinar will highlight various studies that 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 characterization techniques cannot. Powder rheology can therefore support successful optimization and lifecycle management of powders for AM.

Topics will include:
* The influence of powder production methods
* The evaluation of virgin and used feedstocks
* The influence of additives on polymer AM performance
* Quantifying batch-to-batch variation in feedstocks
