    New research establishes the concept of an ‘AM Suitability’ factor for metal powder selection Using the FT4 Powder Rheometer® to answer the question ‘Can I print with this powder?’

    Recently published papers1,2 highlight the potential to use multiple properties measurable with the FT4 Powder Rheometer® from Freeman Technology, a Micromeritics company, to quantify an Additive Manufacturing Suitability (AMS) factor capable of ranking the printability of metal powders in laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) processes. Answering the question ‘Can I print with this?’ is vital
