Powders are a class of materials that see wide applications from additive manufacturing, injection molding, pharmaceuticals, and food science. They are a challenging material phase to design processes for with owing to their variability – composition, particle size and shape distribution, and even how they’re loaded can all play a role in the effective thermal properties of a powder material. A coarse material may clog in process transfer – however, a material which is too fine may cake. Too much pressure can cause consolidation – and too little can cause inefficient heat transfer.
This webinar explores the many ways in which thermal properties of powders under application-relevant conditions can be used to improve processes, from thermal modelling to blend uniformity. Method selection, testing considerations, and data application will be considered.
