Keynote: The International Powder & Bulk Solids Sector in 2021 and Beyond
8–9 a.m. CST

The powder & bulk solids sector is about to undergo massive change. Attend our opening keynote to hear what opportunities lie ahead, and what role advanced manufacturing technologies will play to drive greater safety, agility, and profitability in the processing industries.

Ask the Experts: Advanced Manufacturing Tech for Powder & Bulk Solids Handling
9–10 a.m. CST

Have questions about advanced manufacturing in your dry manufacturing process? Attend this session to raise questions and get expert insights. Look for question submission forms coming soon.

Industry 5.0 for Food & Beverage Processing
10–11 a.m. CST

Learn how the food and beverage industry are using technologies like AI, robotics and advanced human-machine "interfaces" to adapt in a time of crisis— and how they’ll use those same technologies to become more agile, safe and profitable in 2021 and beyond.

Innovation Power Hour

Roundtable Networking
12–1 p.m. CST

Enjoy some facetime as you meet new people and reconnect with colleagues at the Roundtable Networking session. Moderated discussions explore the industry’s most pressing topics such as combustible dust control, 3D printing, robotics, automation and more.

Understanding and Controlling Size Reduction in Processing or Milling — a Mechanistic View
1–2 p.m. CST

This session will address controlling breakage of material in processes, including milling. When we understand what causes a particular material to break and how it breaks, we can use that knowledge to understand/predict how a particular material might behave in a mill or other prescribed process.

Tech Talks
2–3 p.m. CST

Get up to speed on core concepts of powder & bulk solids handling and dry processing, an industrial sector which touches 70% of everything humans use. Gain practical insight through equipment demonstrations and connect with the experts you need to build your process and keep it running.

How to Make a Business Case for Dust Hazard Analyses and Combustion Control
3–4 p.m. CST

With DHAs up for renewal every five years, plant owners must proactively manage the true cost of combustible dust hazards. Attend this session to better understand DHA requirements in risk management terms and how to drive accountability at the best price.

"Every person involved in managing processes where combustible dust is a hazard must-attend these sessions."
