Applications for the EPMA’s PM for non-PM specialists seminar will close 24 May, 2017. The seminar, which is hosted by GKN Sinter Metals and will take place from 27–29 June, 2017, in Radevormwald, Germany, will serve as an introduction to Powder Metallurgy for those new to the industry and showcase the technology’s applications. Topics covered will include traditional press and sinter, Metal Injection Moulding, hot isostatic pressing and Additive Manufacturing.
The seminar will also cover the advantages of PM, design guidelines and the mechanical, dimensional and geometrical features of PM parts. Four companies including GKN and Mimest will present case studies on how they use Powder Metallurgy in their industry with the opportunity to ask any questions in the Q&A session. The seminar will conclude with two technical visits to see PM processes in action.
The seminar fee will include all tuition materials, coffee breaks, lunch, a special dinner on 28 June and two nights’ accommodation. According to the EPMA, the seminar will be of value to individuals who are interested in the Powder Metallurgy industry but do not have a lot of experience, and is ideal for those wanting to work in the industry and for companies investigating how the technology can be used in relation to their current market. Applications for the seminar can be made via the EPMA’s website.
