19 May 2011 : Welland, UK: Powder characterisation company Freeman Technology is significantly expanding its activities in Asia with the appointment of distribution partners in the region who will sell and support the company’s FT4 Powder Rheometer.

DKSH, an established organisation which operates in 35 countries and has a particular focus on Asia, will be Freeman Technology’s distribution partner in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan. In India Freeman Technology will partner with Aimil Ltd., a highly respected distributor of analytical instrumentation, which serves the Indian market via 10 offices around the country and some 50 channel partners.

According to Freeman Technology’s Director of Operations Tim Freeman, the growing demand for the company’s universal powder tester in these dynamic markets means that additional local support is now needed.

“Freeman Technology has been working in powder characterisation for the past 10 years and today the FT4 Powder Rheometer is used all around the world,” said Tim Freeman. “For some years we have had a direct presence in Europe and the US and a distribution partner in Japan. While a dedicated team at our headquarters in the UK provides excellent sales and technical support to customers everywhere, there is now so much interest in Asia that the time is right for us to extend the local services we offer. I am delighted to be working with such long established and well respected companies as DKSH and Aimil.”

The FT4 Powder Rheometer is a universal powder tester that uses patented dynamic methodology, fully automated shear cells and several bulk property tests, including density, compressibility and permeability to quantify powder properties in terms of flow and processability. Correlating this data with processing performance enables users to optimise powder processes.
