In June, EDEM customers from around Europe got together in Frankfurt, Germany to discuss their applications of EDEM simulation technology and exchange ideas..
Companies attending included Amazone, BOMAG, Bucyrus, FLSmidth, Paul Wurth, and Mann & Hummel. Academic institutions in attendance included the University of Bonn, Hamburg University of Technology, Technical University of Dresden, the Pharmaceutical Research Center Engineering GmbH (RCPE), IfG-Institut für Gießereitechnik GmbH (IfG), and the Institut für Fertigteiltechnik und Fertigbau Weimar e. V. (IFF)
The attendees represented a range of industry sectors, applications, and R&D areas including design and optimization of agricultural machinery, asphalt plant and road-making machinery, metals manufacturing, drying and coating of bulk materials, and mining and ore handling machinery. Technical presentations were given by Knut Krenzer, of IFF, Daniele Suzzi, of RCPE and Stephen Cole of DEM Solutions on the application of EDEM in metals manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing, along with a preview of new capability in EDEM 2.3.
The forum provided many networking opportunities and allowed a wide variety of users and potential users of EDEM to get to know each other and learning how they are getting value from the application of EDEM simulation.
