From August, 5th throughout August, 8th the “Blending & Segregation Forum 2019” will be held at the University of Purdue. Organized this year by our research partner, the Center for Particulate Products and Processes (CP3) at the University of Purdue in West Lafayette (IN, USA). Alexanderwerk will actively support the forum and of course also be represented locally. Matt Walczer, National Sales Manager at our US subsidiary Alexanderwerk Inc., will be there to present “The Power of Roller Compaction“.
Incidentally, Alexanderwerk Inc. also supports the forum with exhibits in order to support research in the scientific field of bulk material processing and powder optimization. The University of Purdue operates a WP 120 Pharma from Alexanderwerk in a continuous, integrated production line (blending, roll compaction and tableting) and is funded by the FDA for research in this area. Currently, another WP 120 Pharma is on its way to the USA in order to be able to incorporate the state of the art of roll compaction. Soon this WP 120 Pharma will be installed in the brand new “Flex Center“, a lab sponsored by the FDA.

Last year, Prof. Marcial Gonzales had been able to present interesting lectures on the continuous production of our WP 120 at the two seminars in Wiesbaden. While on Monday, August 5th, in the context of a workshop mainly practical demonstrations are in the foreground, takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday (August, 6th & 7th) a conference with 4 sessions instead. The key note speakers and session chairs are:
- Jennifer Sinclair Curtis
Dean of the College of Engineering
- John Hecht
Technical Section Head: Drying and Particle Processes
Procter & Gamble
- Richard M. Lueptow
Sr. Associate Dean of Operations & Research, McCormick
- Anthony Thornton
Associate Professor of Mathematics & Mechanical Engineering
University of Twente
- Carl Wassgren
Professor of Mechanics and Professor of Industrial & Physical Pharmacy
On Thursday, 8.8.2019, there will be an optional symposium, which, like the workshop, is limited to 20 participants. There are still a few places left at the event! Make a reservation “last minute” and meet great people from industry and research on site as well as experts from Alexanderwerk!
