New Metal Powders Conditioning Chamber Installed at TWI

Mon, 25 July, 2022

We are delighted to announce that we have recently acquired a climatic chamber from Weiss Technik (Figures 1 and 2) for the conditioning of additive manufacturing (AM) metal powders.

The climatic chamber will be used to assess the influence of storage conditions such as the effect of humidity and temperature on AM metallic powders as part of IUK funded Scalable AM Rule Creation & Dissemination (SAMRCD) project.

The climatic chamber is capable of simulating various environmental conditions, thanks to its extended temperature and humidity ranges. Additionally, the climatic chamber allows for rigorous checking and regulation of testing parameters to ensure simulation conditions meet requirements.

If you are interested in simulating a particular environment for your metal powders, simulate storage or operating conditions, assess corrosion resistance, evaluate thermal stress and distortions, understand coating thermal shock response, or if you are interested in finding out more about the capabilities and technical specifications of the climatic chamber, please contact us below.


The SAMRCD Project has received funding by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) under No. 10002048
