Developers of automated testing systems for powders, Freeman Technology, has established a new operation in Japan. The company invests significantly in R&D and applications development
“Japan has always been an important market for Freeman Technology,” said Tim Freeman, Managing Director. “Establishing our own direct operation there reflects the growth we have seen during the last decade.”
Freeman Technology’s solutions include the FT4 Powder Rheometer, a powder tester that uses automated shear cells (in accordance with ASTM D7891) and a series of bulk property tests to quantify powder behaviour in terms of flow and processability.
This is complemented by the new Uniaxial Powder Tester, which measures uniaxial unconfined yield strength (uUYS) of a powder to assess and rank flowability.
The company also offers in-line, real-time flow measurement capabilities via an exclusive partnership with Lenterra, manufacturers of optical flow sensor technology.
