Powder characterization specialist Freeman Technology expands its global operations with the establishment of an office in Germany. Daniel Weber joins the company as product manager and will be based in the region to provide sales and customer support.

“We have been working with businesses in Germany since the company was founded. It has long been a region with a significant number of powder processing companies across a range of industries,” says Tim Freeman, managing director. “The region’s economic status is supported by competence in engineering and manufacturing. Following our recent expansions into other countries and the diversification of our product line, Germany was the obvious next step for Freeman Technology.”

Headquartered in the UK, the company’s solutions include the flagship FT4 Powder Rheometer, a comprehensive powder tester that uses dynamic methodology, automated shear cells (in accordance with ASTM D7891) and a series of bulk property tests to quantify powder behavior in terms of flow and processability. The complementary Uniaxial Powder Tester reportedly provides an accurate and repeatable measure of the 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 Inc, manufacturers of optical flow sensor technology.
