Fachgruppe Pulvertechnologie

Es werden neue Trends, Entwicklungen und Fragestellungen im Bereich Pulverherstellung, Pulveraufbereitung, Verarbeitung und Formgebung sowie thermische Behandlung bis zum Bauteil im Rahmen von Vorträgen thematisch erarbeitet. Dabei werden auch unterschiedliche Charakterisierungs- und Untersuchungsmethoden diskutiert, um Einflüsse von Pulvereigenschaften und Prozessparametern auf Bauteil- und Halbzeugeigenschaften besser zu verstehen. Die Fachgruppe richtet sich vor allem an Personen, die im Bereich Pulvermetallurgie, Keramik und Füllstoffe in Polymeren tätig sind. Herr Dr. Frank Jörg Clemens ist Vorsitzender der Fachgruppe Pulvertechnologie.

New trends, developments, and general topics in the field of powder synthesis, processing and shaping as well as post-processing operations will be in the focus of this expert group. Based on lectures from both industry and academia contributors, different subjects will be highlighted and discussed during regular meetings. Several processing routes and characterization methods will be presented for a better understanding of the influence of powder properties and process parameters on product performance. The expert group is an ideal platform for people working in the fields of powder metallurgy, ceramics, and filler-containing polymers.


Second meeting SVMT Expert Group “Powder Technology”

On the 4th of December, the 2nd meeting of the Expert Group Powder Technology took place at the blueFactory, Friborg. This year’s focus was on “Thermal Treatment of Powder Materials (Debinding and Sintering)”. 28 experts from industry and science accepted the invitation of Frank Clemens from Empa, Jean-Marc Boéchat from HEIA-FR, and Efrain Carreño-Morelli from HES-SO, to join the meeting of the expert group of SVMT (Swiss Association for Materials Science and Technology). After short presentations on SVMT and Plastics Innovation and Competence Center / School of Engineering and Architecture we had six lectures from science and industry on the topic of thermal treatment (debinding and sintering) of metallic and ceramic powders, given by different speakers with an active participation from the audience. After the oral presentations, a lab tour in the areas of injection molding, debinding and sintering, as well as the characterization of ceramic feedstocks and sintered components was organized. At the end of the event, a lively communication and networking took place between the participants. Finally a practical demonstration of the kinetic software Neo, Netzsch, was offered. The next expert meeting in 2020 will take place in Sion at the HES-SO.
