Symposium Powder Materials Workshop: Powder Properties and Handling to Improve Part Quality and Overall Safety
Organizer(s) Emma M. White, DECHEMA Forschungsinstitut
Amy Elliott, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Iver E. Anderson, Iowa State University Ames Laboratory
Scope This workshop will provide information about powder characteristics and properties, including the influences of the production method, handling and storage to maximize the quality of the powders and thus the final consolidated parts. Throughout the course safety will be emphasized, with specific discussions of how various powder attributes affect the ease of handling and the required safety measures. Metal, ceramic, and polymer powders will be covered, as well as various powder characterization methods including flow, morphology, particle size distribution, density and chemical composition. Powder production methods will be discussed in terms of achieving powder specifications and the effect of processing on powder quality. Consolidation will be minimally discussed only as an end goal for the various powders and in terms of the influence of powder quality on the success of select consolidation methods.

Using a combination of instructor presentations and open discussion sessions, this workshop will help attendees examine multiple topics including powder science, powder standards, safety regulations and guidelines, best lab and manufacturing practices, and case studies from industry and research. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and share their experiences with specific applications, best practices, and lessons learned.
