Carpenter Additive, a market leader in the development and supply of a Total Powder Management solution into the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, has launched a new product line called POWDERFLOW™.
POWDERFLOW™ is a comprehensive powder flow measurement kit, which allows you to quickly and fully characterise the powder flow to known ASTM standards. With their extensive experience LPW know that some may confuse machine problems with powder problems and vice versa, resulting in significant time and cost being wasted before a fault is found, therefore POWDERFLOW™ has been developed to combat such issues and thus reducing overall down time.
POWDERFLOW™ is delivered in a robust case and allows you to determine the following: Apparent Density ASTM B212, Angle of Repose, Hall Flow ASTM B213 and Carney Flow ASTM B964.
Working with many of the leading companies within the Aerospace, Biomedical and Automotive industries, LPW has long been unrivalled in its provision of optimised metal powders to the AM industry and are now applying their insight and expertise to provide their Total Powder Management solutions and POWDERFLOW™ is one in a line of new and revolutionary services now available.
Phil Kilburn, LPW Commercial Director said “LPW has produced this comprehensive kit to enable its customers to monitor the health of the powder they are using in their additive manufacturing processes, quickly, simply and cost effectively. I’m sure all users of metal powders will find the POWDERFLOW™ Kit a useful addition to their testing regime.”
