Powder Handling and Flow for Additive Manufacturing

Course

This course is organised by the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology in conjunction with Carpenter Additive and the Fraunhofer IFAM Institute, Bremen.
Reason to attend: you will be guided through the critical aspects of powder management for metal and plastics powder-based AM processing

Course topics include:

  • Powder recycling and quality issues;
  • Contamination and oxidation issues;
  • Standards for AM powders;
  • Flow behaviour and characterisation of powders;
  • Introduction to the handling processes – pneumatic conveying systems, screw feeders, hoppers and silo storage and discharge;

Course Fees: £675

The course will be conducted in English over 5 x 3-hours sessions from 12 to 16 July starting at 14:00 UK time
