Granutools, Awans, Belgium, a provider of physical characterisation tools for metal powders, will run a Powder Flow Course on October 4, 2018, in Liège, Belgium. The company ran its first Powder Flow Course in November 2017, and has since run its second successful course on March 8, 2018.

According to the company, the October course will feature additional upgraded content to allow attendees to learn more about powder flow behaviour and discuss their questions regarding powder flow characterisation with the Granutools team. The course is said to address the topic by balancing theory as well as practice, and will offer numerous examples to enhance understanding.

Granutools was founded in 2015 to address the need for simple, precise and repeatable measurement techniques for powders. According to the company, powder properties are key to accelerating the adoption of AM in volume manufacturing. In order to obtain a thin layer in Additive Manufacturing, the powder must be as fine as possible.

As seats on the course are said to be limited, Granutols recommends prospective attendees apply early. Full details can be requested by emailing [email protected].
