Webinar: Using Size & Shape Data to Optimize Your Metal Powders

Microtrac’s Sync uses an innovative hybrid method of particle size and shape measurement that combines laser diffraction and image analysis. Metal Powders require high flowability and packing density for even, fast loading and high strength in final parts. Key parameters to spec are Sphericity, Smoothness, and Size Distribution. These properties are important for outgoing QC for Metal Powder manufacturers and incoming QC for Powder Metalllurgy parts manufacturers. This presentation describes the QC requirements and a combination analytical instrument which measures them. Join us for this webinar as we cover: How Microtrac integrated laser diffraction and dynamic image analysis technology in ... Read More

Webinar: How to Meet ASTM Standards for Roofing Shingle Mineral Granules

The quality and performance of roofing shingles depend on the raw materials used during production and therefore require quality control by particle characterization. These roofing shingles consist of a layer of mineral granules on top of an asphalt layer which is embedded in a fiberglass or cellulose mat. The shingles get fastened to a roof covered with a thin flexible sheeting. The granules, asphalt, mat and sheeting act together to form a durable, flexible and waterproof assembly. The mineral granules must meet standards specifications for size distribution and opacity to ensure minimum damage to the asphalt layer from both mechanical ... Read More

Metal Powders Processing and Manufacturing

Metal Powders Processes The industries of Metal Powders manufacturing and Powder Metallurgy parts manufacturing came into modern day prominence about 70 years ago. Since then, several types of both metal powder and powdered parts manufacturing processes have been developed and are still practiced. The major processes used are described below. Direct Reduction (sponge iron), Gas Atomization, Liquid Atomization, and Centrifugal Atomization are all processes in use today. Click here for the app note Direct Reduction Purified iron oxide ore, combined with a carbon source like coke, is heated to high temperatures usually in a rotary kiln. The product is sponge ...
