APMA 2013, 2nd International Conference on Powder Metallurgy in Asia, was successfully held in Xiamen, China from November 3rd to 6th, 2013. Organised by Chinese Strategic Alliance for Technological Innovation in Powder Metallurgy Industry (SATI-PM) in conjunction with Taiwan Powder Metallurgy Association (TPMA), the event attracted over 500 participants from international business and research institutes.

The theme of the conference was “Powder Metallurgy- Challenge and Development in Asia” and included extensive coverage and discussion on the challenges and opportunities for Powder Metallurgy, the status quo and prospective application of new theories, materials, technology and PM products.

Leading experts from both Asia and the international PM community presented over 100 oral papers at the conference. There were over 100 poster presentations along with an award ceremony recognising the best papers.

Technical reports and papers were focused on iron and copper base parts, refractory materials and Hardmetals, PM functional materials, powder forming, post-processing and non-ferrous materials. An in-depth discussion was launched on PM technology, its development status and trends in various countries, bringing up the strategic direction and technology roadmap of the PM industry.

Running alongside APMA 2013 was the 2013 China Powder Metallurgy Conference and Cross-Strait Powder Metallurgy Technology Seminar, the Third Session of the First SATI-PM Committee Conference and an APMA Committee Conference.

The event included a large exhibition attracting both local and international companies along with a good number of visitors. Powder Metallurgy Review and our sister publication, PIM International, were represented in the exhibition and distribution of both magazines took place from our exhibition booth.
