Element Materials Technology has signed a multi-year contract with an aerospace additive design and manufacturing business to provide testing at Element’s laboratory in California.

The company’s work for Morf3D will include a full range of materials testing including powder characterization, chemistry, metallurgical, mechanical and fatigue testing, Element said. The team will also perform non-destructive testing at with digital and traditional radiography.

In early 2020, Element invested in a full suite of powder characterization technology for the additive design and manufacturing supply chain, including chemical composition analysis, powder sieve analysis, particle size distribution, flow rate, apparent density, tap density, and gas pycnometry.
