    Haldor Topsøe achieve major gains in manufacturing efficiency through advanced powder testing

    FT4 Powder Rheometer delivers a compelling payback via better equipment and raw material selection. Multi-faceted powder testing with the FT4 Powder Rheometer® from Freeman Technology (Tewkesbury, UK) is delivering significant economic gains for Haldor Topsøe (Lyngby, Denmark), a global leader in high performance catalysts and proprietary technology for the chemical and refining industries. Having developed robust

    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
