Alexanderwerk at Blending & Segregation Forum 2019 (Purdue University, August 5 – 8, 2019)

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.

How high-caliber the event is, shows the Scientific Committee:

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
