‘Electrostatic Charging and its Impact on Powder Flowability’, by Louis-Philippe Lefebvre, Roger Pelletier and Cindy Charbonneau, of the National Research Council Canada, has been selected for the 2021 Metal AM Outstanding Technical Paper Award. The paper was chosen after a critical evaluation of the highly qualified manuscripts presented at the AMPM2021 conference.
The Metal AM Outstanding Technical Paper Award was established in 2018 to recognise authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications. The award is for papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International.
The award aims to enhance the quality of technology transfer in the PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the conference and to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to additively manufactured Powder Metallurgy products, processes and materials.
Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review; has clear presentation in writing, organisation, graphics, format, and has professional integrity; has clear industrial application; and has long-term value.
The authors will be officially recognised during AMPM2022, scheduled to take place in Portland, Oregon, USA, from June 12–15.
The paper is now available to read from the MPIF website.
