Freeman Technology, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK, and Malvern Panalytical Ltd, Malvern, Worcestershire, UK, will host a seminar on Additive Manufacturing at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, UK, on September 24, 2019.
The one-day seminar, titled ‘Understanding Powders for Additive Manufacturing’, will provide an introduction to the principles of powder rheology and how the associated methodologies can be applied to understand and optimise AM applications. The seminar will include the following presentations:
- ‘Evaluating process-relevant powder properties for Additive Manufacturing applications‘ – Jamie Clayton, Operations Director, Freeman Technology
- ‘Measuring and optimising powder size and shape for Additive Manufacturing’ – Dr Cathryn Langley, Product Manager, Malvern Panalytical
- ‘Using X-Rays to see inside your powdered materials and processes’ – Dr Paul O Meara, Applications Specialist, Malvern Panalytical
Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear from industry experts on the challenges of powder handling processes in the following presentations:
- ‘Below the surface – the hidden world of polymer AM’ – Dr Candice Majewski, Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, University of Sheffield
- ‘Unlocking the potential of Additive Manufacturing’ – Dr Jason Dawes, Technology Manager -Materials Engineering, The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC)
- ‘The importance of powder rheometry to assess the differences between polymer powders for selective laser sintering’ – Enrico Gallino, Material Specialist, Ricoh
Additionally, Freeman Technology states that delegates will also have the opportunity to see demonstrations of the FT4 Powder Rheometer® from Freeman Technology; the Morphologi 4 from Malvern Panalytical; and the Mastersizer 3000 from Malvern Panalytical.
