Freeman Technology, LPW Technology and Malvern Instruments  are hosting a 'Technology Day' at Daresbury Laboratory (Warrington, UK) on 24th May 2016.

Additive manufacturing, or 3D Printing, is a transformative and potentially highly efficient manufacturing technique.

There is a wide range of AM processes and each demands a high degree of consistency in the feedstock in order to guarantee final product quality. A comprehensive understanding of feedstock powders is therefore essential for achieving high productivity and optimising efficiency.

This ‘Technology Day’ provides guidance on selecting powders for AM and introduces powder characterisation technology required for such exacting applications.
