In November 2004 Perdac and Atomising Systems Ltd of Sheffield UK, held the 4th very well received presentation of their Course "Atomization of Melts". To satisfy requests from industry we then developed this course devoted entirely to Atomizing Metals for Powder Production This course provides a cohesive overview suitable for those in both the industrial and research environments, and it also acts as a concise introduction to those relatively new to the field.
The course (held at Hotels
in central Manchester) has now been run ten times and with very positive feedback from around 250 registrants from 5 continents, who appreciated the close focus on metal powders, the intensive
nature of the course over just two days, and the up to the minute knowledge that was provided on current practice and developments. Although the background of essential theory is not ignored, the
course is very much practically oriented and with the importance of economics, safety and maintenance being emphasised.
A Systems Engineering approach is used to cover the whole powder production process. Coverage is given of all metals and also all of the atomization techniques, both in common use and developed for special applications. Please download the course leaflet for more details and fees.
Following changes made
successfully in our 2016 course, we now highlight new presentations on Additive Manufacturing, by Dr John Dunkley, and the practical utilisation of modern powder characterisation methods, by our new
contributor Dr Doug Millington-Smith
Although the course is constructed to satisfy the requirements of industrial practitioners, it is undoubtedly also useful for researchers at universities or other research establishments.
Please download the Course Leaflet (see above) for fuller information including Fees.
