Technology day to focus on powders for Additive Manufacturing

April 13, 2016

A one day course titled ‘Understanding Powders for Additive Manufacturing’ is set to take place on 24th May, 2016 in Daresbury, Warrington, UK. Hosted by Freeman Technology, LPW Technology and Malvern Instruments, the event will provide guidance on selecting powders for Additive Manufacturing and introduces powder characterisation technology required for such demanding AM applications.

There is a wide range of AM processes and each demands a high degree of consistency in the feedstock in order to guarantee final product quality. A comprehensive understanding of feedstock powders is therefore essential for achieving high productivity and optimising efficiency.

The course will include the following presentations:

  • Unlocking the Potential of Additive Manufacturing
  • Dr Jason Dawes – Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC)
  • Characterising and Optimising the Particle Size and Shape of Metal Powders for Additive Manufacturing
  • Dr Paul Kippax – Malvern Instruments
  • Understanding Powder Behaviour for Additive Manufacturing Applications
  • Jamie Clayton – Freeman Technology
  • Total Powder Management: The Importance of Powder Characterisation for Quality Control in AM
  • Dr Robert Deffley, LPW Technology
  • Practical Demonstrations by Freeman Technology, LPW Technology & Malvern Instruments
