A three day course on Powder Technology in Pharma, Food, Chemistry and Metallurgy is scheduled to take place at Sweden’s Lund University, September 9-11, 2015.
The aim of the course is to provide participants with a better understanding of powder products and processes and to supply tools to stimulate new ideas for development and improvement of powder products and processes.
The course format includes round table discussions focusing on specific themes such as rheology, powder characterisation, granulation, agglomeration and processing of metal powders. The course will focus on all powders used industrially, with a special module focusing on metallic powders and their applications.
The metallic powders and their applications programme discusses methods for producing metal powders, microstructure control and powder preparation, shaping and consolidation, including sintering. HIP and full density processing is covered along with the characterisation of powder products and material properties.
