AMES, Barcelona, Spain has announced the winners of AMES – Joan Antoni Bas R&D Award during a prize-giving ceremony held during the seventh Spanish Conference on Powder Metallurgy and second Ibero-American Conference on Powder Metallurgy, which took place in Madrid, Spain, on June 25, 2019.

According to AMES, it named the award after Joan Antoni Bas, said to be one of the pioneers of Powder Metallurgy in Spain. Dr Bas set up the Research Department of AMES and was its director for over thirty years. He worked in hardmetal, structural components, self-lubricated bearings and soft magnetic materials, and especially in characterising and improving basic manufacturing processes. During his career, he was a key player in the technological development of PM in Spain.

First prize was awarded to Dr Ana Ferrández, Spanish Ceramics and Glass Institute, for her work, ‘Processing of Mg base materials through the combination of colloidal techniques and Additive Manufacturing.’

Second prize was awarded to Dr Lorena Lozada, Centre for Technical Research and Studies of Gipuzkoa (CEIT), for her work ‘Sintering of TiCN-based cermets with multi-component metal binders for high-speed machining of treated steels and ADI castings’.
