Joseph Wright is currently a senior at Millersville University, dual majoring in physics and applied engineering technology management with concentrations in nanotechnology and nanofabrication manufacturing technologies. Originally a part of his thesis on mechanical alloying and milling, he pursued this research when varying milling process parameters. Metal powders used in metallurgy must be produced in great masses to satisfy the needs of industry. Conventional ball milling utilizes a random movement procedure that yields such powders but in low quantities. Planetary ball milling is examined as an alternative to conventional ball milling, and milling times, mass yield, and motion of the system are examined.
