Malvern Panalytical to host metal powder particle sizing webinar

June 10, 2020

Malvern Panalytical, a global supplier of analytical instrumentation and software, reports that it will host a live webinar: ‘Exploring the Benefits of Real-time Particle Sizing for Metal Powders’, on June 15, 2020. Speakers include Dr Steven Hall, Senior Research Engineer at Manufacturing Technology Center (MTC), and Tina Rowney, Process Application Specialist at Malvern Panalytical.

The company explains that metal powders for high-value Powder Metallurgy applications such as Additive Manufacturing have strict specification requirements because small variations in input material can adversely affect the properties of the final component. 

To address this need, powder handling systems at atomiser and end-user facilities are becoming increasingly more continuous and sealed. This requires relevant techniques for monitoring powder properties in-line with particle size one of the key metrics required to ensure effective and automated process control. 

The webinar will discuss the benefits of in-line particle sizing for in-atomiser and end-user facilities and report work comparing in-line (Insitec) and off-line (Mastersizer 3000) measurements for four stainless steel powders, having particle size ranges suitable for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), Additive Manufacturing, laser powder deposition and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). 

Metal, ceramic or polymer powder manufacturers interested in monitoring or controlling particle size during the manufacturing process, as well as end-users looking for automated powder recycling solutions, are invited to register to attend the live webinar. 

Attendees will learn how on-line laser diffraction compares with laboratory-based systems compare and how it can be integrated into a manufacturing or end user facility to give real-time particle size information and effective process control.

Further information and registration details are available via the company website.
