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 in 2019. The two-day course will take place from March 14-15 in Manchester, UK.

The 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.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
