In October, the Powder Metallurgy World Congress series returns to Asia for the first time in six years. Yokohama, the host city of World PM2024, last welcomed the international PM community in 2012. In the intervening period, the commercial landscape for PM, Metal Injection Moulding, and metal Additive Manufacturing has changed beyond recognition.

As PM Review’s Nick Williams reports, our industry now has an opportunity to come together to share knowledge and speak with one voice to a new generation of end-users about PM’s role in the future of sustainable industrial manufacturing.

The state of Europe’s hard magnets industry and the challenge of optimising the mass production of Nd2Fe14B permanent magnets

Europe’s shift towards electric vehicles is driving one of the region’s most significant periods of transformation. As the demand for conventional Powder Metallurgy parts reduces, the need for permanent magnets is rising.

Here, GKN Powder Metallurgy Engineering GmbH’s Dr Markus Schneider, Kevin Haffke and Dr Dennis Wawoczny present the story of the rise, fall, and rise again of sintered Nd2Fe14B magnet production in Europe. They then explore how the theory of brittle solids, when applied to sintered rare earth permanent magnets, offers a path to improved production robustness and quality.
