Edinburgh, United Kingdom – This simulation models over 8 million particles of less than 0.3mm in size. Large amounts of tiny particles are common in Additive Manufacturing applications. This video shows powder raking and how EDEM tools can be used to analyze voidage, particle orientation and number of contacts at different time steps. Similar simulations can guide the design and optimization of the powder rake and its speed.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom – Discrete Element Method (DEM) specialist EDEM and The Barnes Group Advisors, specialists in advising on and solving problems associated with industrial additive manufacturing, announced a collaboration agreement to advance the use of simulation to aid design decisions for equipment and processes in the additive manufacturing industry.
Undoubtedly the most frustrating part about using DEM technology is finding the material properties to accurately simulate your material. It’s also the part that introduces the greatest uncertainty.
With the completion of a belt conveyor installation in Chinese Sichuan, the BEUMER Group has once again demonstrated its pioneering role as a specialist for intralogistic conveying. On a length of 12.6 kilometres BEUMER has developed and installed a system for limestone transport between the quarry and the cement plant.
