Efficiency of the production process of powder bed additives is reliant on packing density and flow behaviour of metal powders involved.
Particle size and shape directly influences these properties and are important quality parameters for assessing and grading powders for use in the process.
In this webinar, Dr Paul Kippax will discuss the importance of particle size and shape in terms of packing behavior and processing. He will also look at how these parameters can be measured using laser diffraction and morphological imaging.
The webinar will take place on 28 February from 10:30am to 11:30am (GMT-05:00) Eastern US & Canada time.
Paul Kippax is Product Group Manager for Micrometrics. A chemist and colloid scientist by background, he first joined Malvern Instruments over 18 years ago as a technical specialist working in the field of acoustics.
In 2002 he moved into product management where he used his experienced gained working the pharmaceutical industry to guide the development of the Spraytec and Mastersizer 3000 platforms.
He now heads up the team responsible for Malvern’s laser diffraction and imaging product ranges. Paul holds a degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Physical Chemistry.
