June marks the end of our first year with Micromeritics and I’m delighted to already see the benefits of being part of a larger company.
A particular highlight has been working with an extended group of scientists and engineers with in-depth knowledge complementary to our own. The Micromeritics portfolio includes instrumentation for measuring properties that directly influence powder flowability including particle size and shape, density, surface area and porosity. With an FT4 Powder Rheometer installed at Micromeritics headquarters in Norcross (USA), and at the newly opened Particle Testing Authority lab in Munich (Germany), everything is in place to implement application research that will further advance our understanding of powder behaviour. Indeed, joint studies of pharmaceutical powders and metal powders for additive manufacturing are already underway.
With customers also already benefiting from a significantly strengthened distributor network I’m looking forward to further growth in the coming year.
