Particle Engineering from Nano to Macro

The TTC Technology Training Center hosted its workshop “Particle Engineering across the Length Scale” at Glatt Ingenieurtechnik in Weimar from October 24 to 26, 2017. Most of the participants were researchers from universities, product or process developer or production manager from the international food, feed, pharmaceutical and chemical industry.

The first workshop day focused on the theoretical background of particle engineering, while the second & third day consisted of several practical sessions in the Technology Center at Glatt Ingenieurtechnik. The feedback on the combination of theoretical and practical sessions was thoroughly positive. The possibilities for particle design and particle engineering using fluidized bed processes generated intensive and interesting discussions. The participants were also impressed by the service portfolio of the Technology Center. Feasibility studies, product & process development as well as contract manufacturing services can be offered.

The guided tour through Weimar connected with a dinner in the Felsenkeller, provided an ideal platform for exchange of experience and social networking.

For over 15 years, the TTC Technology Training Center has been expanding knowledge by offering specialized workshops in Binzen and Weimar, Germany, combining theory with hands-on experience. Some 100 renowned speakers from relevant industries and universities share their unique technology expertise with the participants. The topics covered are tailored to the solid processing disciplines: drying, granulation, agglomeration, pelletizing, encapsulation and coating technologies for pharmaceutical, fine chemical, food, feed and related industries. The lectures, open plenum discussions and informal networking give further opportunities to learn more about new technology trends, experience and case studies. Widen your experience, increase your know-how and broaden network by signing up for one of TTC’s workshops!
