Control the Quality of Your Metal Powders

Additive Manufacturing (AM), aka 3D printing, is the fastest growing manufacturing process in the world today. One of its many advantages is the ability to quickly manufacture a custom product without the expensive set-up costs required for tooling for mass production. Another is the ability to produce more complex, high strength, custom parts, often without sub-assembly or subsequent machining operations. AM is made up of many different types of operations which range from simple overlay printing, with liquid or filament plastic feed material, for example, to particulate feed ranging from plastics to ceramics to metal powders. Metal Powder AM is ... Read More

Determining the Quality of Your Proppants

What is fracking? Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a process for drilling and extracting oil or gas from shale deposits. This process has been growing for several decades, but especially rapidly in the last 5 - 10 years. In the past, fracking was the second most expensive extraction method, behind Canadian oil sands. Recent downward pressure on oil prices forced many operations to be closed or temporarily suspended over the last year. This encouraged many major oil/gas producers in the US and Europe to invest heavily in lowering fracking costs by advancing the technology. This progress has reduced break-even costs from ...

Advantages of Measuring Particles in 3D verses 2D

The PartAn3D analyzer can be run in 3-dimension or in 2-dimension image analysis. In fact, Microtrac offers the only Dynamic Image Analyzers that have a 3D mode of operation, a patented feature. When analysis is run in 2D, every captured image of particles is included in the analysis, which means that each image is an image of one randomly oriented particle. The 2D analysis is only nearly as good as 3D analysis if the particles are close to spherical in shape. When spherical in shape, all reported parameters are almost as accurate in 2D as they are in 3D. When ... Read More
