When faced with an array of options for your processing equipment, how do you know which one to choose?
Introduction to the Processing of Dry Solid Materials is a short course taking place 8th – 9th September 2016 in Chatham, Kent.
This course will clarify the pros and cons of each type of hardware and help you to make an informed selection.
The following topics will be considered:
• Formation/agglomeration of powders
• Blending operations (tumbling vs high shear)
• Particle size reduction (mill types)
• Drying or moisture modification
• Particle coating
Is this course for me? If you are a plant designer, plant manager or work in maintenance, this course will improve your ability to deal with the design and troubleshooting of plants. You'll also benefit if you are from operational staff or senior management through a better understanding of potential pitfalls and how to make your plant as efficient and trouble-free as possible.
The Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Show returns to Manchester’s EventCity on September 28th and 29th 2016. Now in its fourth year, the show continues to grow in stature as the key event in the North for engineering enterprise.
The 2015 exhibition set a new benchmark both for visitor attendance and the number of companies participating. 2016 looks set to provide even further expansion, with more expert services and products on show. Northern Manufacturing has speedily blossomed as the leading exhibition in the North for industry, engineering and manufacturing. One event provides visitors with an impressive assortment of machinery manufacturers, tool suppliers, subcontractors and suppliers addressing just about every imaginable production need. In conjunction with its established Southern sibling event – next year celebrating its 20th anniversary – Northern Manufacturing & Electronics provides the only annual opportunity to meet up with such a wide selection of providers at a single show.
As opposed to focusing on just one particular sector, the shows take a much broader overview of engineering and manufacturing. The big brands such as Igus, Renishaw, Amada, Trumpf, Variohm Eurosensor, Haas Automation, Olympus, are very visible presences, but they are accompanied by many more small to medium-sized firms; experts offering all kinds of components and subcontract services. The SME-friendly feel of the event precisely echoes the modern UK industrial environment in which in more than 80% of engineering companies are classified as micro or small businesses. The exhibition therefore is an extremely important regional forum for the great number of these high-value engineering enterprises, many of whom are actively involved in the complex supply chain sustaining the regionally important industries of Aerospace, Automotive, Defence and Public Transportation, which collectively generate billions of pounds of earnings every year.
Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is the central arena in the North for components, both electronic and mechanical. Around half of visitors last year regarded components as the prime reason for their visit. As a result of the rich assortment of services and products on show, it is not surprising that the event enjoys support from machine builders, designers, engineers and procurement professionals from a wide range of industries.
Besides the thousands of production solutions on display, Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is also a great opportunity to pick up new knowledge, thanks to the complimentary technical seminar programme that runs over the two days of the event. A series of one-hour long workshops brought to you by authorities in their particular spheres will cover a great many technical and business matters such as for example Lean, CE Marking, product development, designing for hazardous environments, 3D printing and much more. The full programme and pre-registration is available HERE.
The Biomass Generation Forum is intended to bring operators together to assess a range of operational, strategic and technical themes for existing biomass and co-firing plants. Our operationally focused agenda will feature presentations from a range of biomass plant operators, plus technical subject matter experts, who will equip you with lessons learned and knowledge that you can implement in your organisation.
Taking place in Birmingham on 22-23 September, 2016, this Forum has been designed with interactivity in mind. Presentations - focusing on operations, risk and HSE - will be followed by extended Q&A sessions, while time has also been built into the agenda for discussion groups and round tables with the experts. There is no better opportunity to join an informal and interactive environment, designed to maximise learning, discussion and networking.
Confirmed case studies and expert insight include:
* Hear from Dong Energy about management of operational risk under tough market conditions
* Experience with new build Värtan CHP 8 - road to zero emission from Fortum
* Find out from Ofgem about the latest policy changes in the Renewables Obligation (RO)
* Overview of the newly constructed and commissioned Ultra Super Critical Power Plant at the Maasvlakte from Engie
* Ramboll - Optimisation of CHP Performance
* RWE - Perspective on the challenge of conversion and the process of integration with new equipment and existing fire protection and detection systems
Discover the lessons learned and knowledge that you need to implement successful, safe and risk-free biomass generation processes from Europe's only operationally focused biomass generation event.
Based on exhibitor sales and current plans, the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016 is expected to be one of the largest in show history with even more to offer visitors. The show will be held September 12-17, 2016, at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Registration will open on February 1, 2016.
Early results on participating exhibitors and exhibitor floor square footage contracted for IMTS 2016 are both ahead of the IMTS 2014 pace at 1,382 exhibitors and 1.256 million net square feet (22% increase and 8% increase, respectively).
“After the largest IMTS in more than a decade in 2014, the 2016 show is building to be even stronger. It will expand to five halls of McCormick Place with the addition of Hall C in the North Building. It is very exciting to see the continued interest and real growth in manufacturing in the USA,” said Peter R. Eelman, vice president – Exhibitions & Communications at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which produces and owns IMTS. “The show is expecting more than 100,000 visitors from 112 countries who will come to gather ideas and see new technologies in action. IMTS is the place where innovation thrives.
The Deepwater Operations Conference and Exhibition is celebrating its 14th anniversary.
