At Powtech 2014 (30 Sept – 2 Oct, Nürnberg, Germany), Freeman Technology, the powder characterisation specialists, will present ‘Choosing a Powder Tester’. When evaluating powder testers, there is no shortage of options; this new booklet provides guidance on selecting the most suitable instrumentation. It considers questions such as ‘what makes powder testing complex?’ and ‘what should I look for in a powder testing method?’ allowing readers to make an informed decision when sourcing an appropriate measurement technology. The second in a series of three educational guides, the booklet is a follow up to the highly popular ‘An Introduction to Powders’ which explains the fundamental principles of powder behaviour.
At this year’s event there will be two opportunities to meet with the Freeman Technology team. On 29th September, experts in the field will be holding a seminar at NCC Ost (located within the same Convention Centre as the exhibition). The seminar will discuss why powder flow is important, review traditional measurement techniques and explain how powder behaviour relates to in-process performance. If you would like to attend the seminar, please contact Freeman Technology for more information as spaces will be limited.
Representatives from Freeman will also be on hand throughout Powtech to discuss all aspects of powder characterisation, including how the FT4 Powder Rheometer® is being applied in the rapidly growing and potentially transformative sector of Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing. With a strong and coherent strategy for solving powder processing challenges, the team welcomes the opportunity to discuss the challenges associated with optimising formulations, improving quality and increasing productivity. We look forward to meeting you on stand #5-425.
