APMI International has announced that it will release a self-study course on the fundamental principles of processing ferrous Powder Metallurgy materials. Presented by Dr Randall German, the course is intended to provide a solid framework for those working in the PM field.

Students are expected to gain an understanding of the practical processing of iron and steel, and engineering as it relates to the technology. The course will have a strong technical emphasis on ferrous materials behaviour, utilising various manufacturing processes and some market data. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to:

  • Differentiate iron and steel crystal structures, mechanical properties, and its dominance as an engineered material
  • Discuss particle size, shape, characterisation, and techniques for producing iron and steel powders
