  • HPTRI
    • The Hosokawa Powder Technology Research Institute (HPTRI) was founded in 1958 with a vision that differed from the traditional research departments of major companies at the time.
    • While their main target was new product development, the ethos of HPTRI was contributing to the development of powder and particle technology through R&D works. The focus on innovative research into powder technology remains as we seek solutions to meet the increased demands of the market for higher quality powder processing in the fields of secondary battery, materials for electronic devices, toner, energy, environment, medicine and functional foods.
    • At the heart of HPTRI is the R&D work that we undertake to develop advanced high-functional powder processing equipment and systems. We undertake R&D activities worldwide within each of the Hosokawa group companies with R&D themes discussed at the International R&D Meeting composed of the representatives of each member company.
    • HPTRI continues, as the R&D centre of the whole Hosokawa Micron Group, uniting group companies and creating new technologies and products to meet customer needs for ‘future technology’.
  • The KONA Journal
    • Published annually by the Hosokawa Powder Technology Foundation, the peer reviewed scientific journal contains a blend of scientific review and original research articles in the fields of powder and particle technology.
    • The papers describe technological experiences and critical reviews of existing knowledge in the broad field of powder science with invited contributions from select research groups around the world on innovative applications of particle technology, including topics such as bio and nanotechnology.
    • The KONA journal is available for FREE. Click on the Journal cover above to download.
  • International Nanomaterials Symposium
    • A first of its kind, industry-academic meeting, to discuss the commercial collaboration opportunities of functional nanomaterials has laid the foundations for future global developments.
    • Commencing 25 years ago, research into Nanotechnology is still very much in its infancy and open to a variety of different industry paths. By bringing together industry experts and leading academics, it is hoped a clearer route to the development of new functional materials can be mapped out.
