POWDERMATRIX Helps Keep Industry Ahead in Tooling

Anyone with a technical interest or involved in die pressing will be interested in a one-day Awareness Meeting being organised by PowdermatriX.

The meeting will cover recent developments in materials and manufacturing methods for powder compaction tooling and associated issues, such as lubrication and assisted die filling technologies.

This meeting will be of particular interest to technical personnel across all sectors from powder feedstocks, toolmakers supplying to these sectors and powder suppliers. As well as the advanced ceramics, powder metals, hardmetals and magnets sectors, the presentations will also be relevant to producers of pharmaceutical and other pressed products.

PowdermatriX, the Faraday Partnership responsible for the development and promotion of powder processing, is hosting the meeting, which will take place at the CRDM, (the Centre for Rapid Design and Manufacturing) of Buckinghamshire University College, High Wycombe on Tuesday 10 May.

John Liddle of PowdermatriX explained: “The agenda for the meeting will include sessions on; Recent developments in tooling materials, alternatives to ad-mixed lubricants (including die wall lubrication systems), Toolmaking technologies (including rapid toolmaking techniques), developments for assisted die filling. The opportunity will also be provided for attendees to view the rapid design and manufacturing facilities at CRDM.”
