Powders are at the core of numerous applications in the pharmaceutical, food, additive manufacturing, chemicals and other process manufacturing industries.
Powder handling and processing present unique challenges to industry because of their variable physical characteristics and flow properties.
Typical challenges linked to powder handling include uneven mixing, segregation, caking, blockage, breakage and more. Understanding powders’ behavior is critical to ensure manufacturing efficiency and avoid quality issues with the final product.
Find out how EDEM simulation technology can be used to obtain a greater understanding of powder behavior and optimize a range of processes.
EDEM is the market-leading software for bulk material simulation.
Powered by state-of-the-art Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablet, and powders.
EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
Since November 2019, EDEM has been part of Altair.
