Developing an effective metal powder specification for binder jet 3D printing

Binder jet 3D printing or binder jetting is an established metal additive manufacturing (AM) technology with notable advantages relative to other metal additive processes. Build times tend to be relatively fast, and large-scale structures are readily manufactured. Binding powder layers during processing, rather than thermally fusing them, avoids the build-up ... read more

Reducing plastic waste

“Every minute the equivalent of a truck full of plastic is emptied into the world’s oceans” [1]. The effect of plastic waste has received a lot of coverage in the media in recent months, most notably with the BBC documentaries Blue Planet 2 and the War on Plastic. It is ... read more

A QbD approach to continuous tablet manufacture

The pharmaceutical industry is looking to continuous processing to enhance production efficiency and product quality, in line with guidance from the regulatory agencies. However, in order to maximise the benefit of continuous processing, and obtain regulatory approval, it is necessary to establish the link between the processing parameters and the ... read more

The application of powder rheology in additive manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is sensitive to powder variability when applying fine layers in a uniform manner. This process, often referred to as “spreading”, demands a high degree of consistency and repeatability in the feedstock. Particle size is often used as a critical quality attribute (CQA), but studies suggest this is ... read more
