In Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing), the powder spreading process has a major impact on the characteristics and quality of the final product. Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) can be used to simulate and analyze the powder spreading process – providing key insight that is otherwise hard to obtain. This video shows how DEM simulation can be used to investigate the impact of different parameters on the quality of the powder bed, evaluate powder spreading uniformity, assess degree of compaction and visualize the distribution of different powder layers. EDEM is the market-leading Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation. (Published on YouTube on February 16, 2017)

In the area of biomass handling, we offer high consistency of dosing for safe and precise feeding of the right amount of energy to the thermal process. With this, Geroldinger, with its system, has mastered all kinds of fuels with cellulose content from miscanthus and nutshells to wood chips, wood dust and shavings. Safe storage, discharge and constant feeding to the boiler result in fully automatic and extremely economical operation. (Published on YouTube on January 5, 2017)
This 5-station, bulk bag unloader system combines high-capacity structural construction with a centralized controls and automation architecture to safely and accurately supply to downstream process operations a total of 12 million pounds-per-year of five, combustible input ingredients. Each bulk bag unloader station is constructed of thick-wall, 6-inch by 4-inch carbon steel structural tubing, and heavy-gauge carbon steel plate to meet, or exceed, ANSI and ASME specifications. The controls and automation architecture of the 5-station system uses custom PLCs and HMIs engineered, programmed, and built by NBE to integrate to the process facility’s central control system, while also complying with international standards.
