The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Technology, Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment, invites you to an expert talk entitled:”Advancements in Sustainable Material Processing through Microwave Technology”

Abstract: The advent of microwave technology has revolutionized the material processing industry by providing substantial gains in energy efficiency, less environmental impact, and enhanced material characteristics. The combination of microwaves with the casting and sintering processes has led to remarkable advances, and this talk will offer a thorough summary of those innovations. In this talk, we’ll go through the underlying processes and concepts that make microwave-assisted material processing possible, with an emphasis on the rapidity, precision, and uniformity of microwave heating. Microwave heating technology will be discussed in detail, with a focus on its cutting-edge impact on casting and sintering, including how it improves material densification, mechanical characteristics, and microstructure control. Innovative solutions that improve efficiency and product quality while also conforming to global environmental goals are essential as we go forward in the material processing industry. The goal of this talk is to encourage interaction and further research into the potential of microwave technology to radically alter the landscape of green material processing.
