Atomising Systems Ltd and Personal Development Advanced Courses (PERDAC), a division of CPFResearch Ltd, will hold their popular short course on atomisation for metal powders for the twelfth time from March 14-15, 2019, in Manchester, UK.

The two-day course will consist of presentations from John Dunkley (Chairman, Atomising Systems Ltd), Dirk Aderhold (Technical Director, Atomising Systems Ltd), Tom Williamson (Research Engineer, Atomising Systems Ltd), Rajeev Dattani (Applications Specialist, Freeman Technology) and Andrew Yule (Emeritus Professor, University of Manchester).

A combination of up-to-date practical information and theory, the course is aimed at engineers working in both metal powder production and R&D. The programme includes expanded coverage of Additive Manufacturing and modern powder analysis methods.
