Powder flow measurement kit available from LPW

January 12, 2016

LPW Technology has announced the launch of a new powder flow measurement kit that allows the quick and full characterisation of powder flow to a number of ASTM standards. Aimed at those in the metal Additive Manufacturing industry, LPW’s POWDERFLOW™ kit will help to distinguish between powder and machine problems, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Powder flow measurement kit available from LPW - powder-flowMeasuring powder flow allows the user to determine whether or not the powder is changing within the AM process. The new kit allows operators to determine apparent density (ASTM B212), angle of repose, Hall flow (ASTM B213) and Carney flow (ASTM B964).

“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,” stated Phil Kilburn, LPW Commercial Director.
