The MPIF has published details of a seminar called ‘Powder Processing: Quality, Handling & Safety for Performance’ as part of PowderMet 2021.

The seminar takes place on 20 June 1–4 pm and will be run by Emma White of Ames Laboratory and Amy Elliott from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, covering basic information and guidance on the use of powders, including safety, handling and storage, in order to maximize the quality of the powders and performance of the consolidated parts.

Topics include:

  • safety regulations and guidelines
  • powder production/consolidation
  • best lab and manufacturing practices
  • case studies from industry and practices research
  • powder science.

The tutorial is considered a collection of best practices and summary of experience, not an endorsement of any specific procedures nor equipment, the MPIF said.
