July 16, 2019

The VDI Transmission Congress ‘Dritev – Drivetrain for Vehicles 2020’, organised by VDI Wissenforum GmbH, will take place in Bonn, Germany, June 24–25, 2020. Following a successful event held at the World Conference Centre in Bonn this year, the congress is set return to the same venue and will again showcase the latest developments in the automotive drivetrain industry.

Dritev 2019 attracted over 1,300 delegates, with around 100 exhibitors. Sessions on the conference programme covered current drivetrain technology as well as solutions for electrical powertrains, hybrid systems, increasing power density and transmission concepts.

In addition to acting as a media sponsor, Powder Metallurgy Review exhibited at this year’s event. From our booth and the media distribution point, copies of PM Review, Metal AM and PIM International were available for all visitors. Believed to be one of the largest networking platforms for automotive powertrain and transmission development, Dritev proved an ideal opportunity to reach a focused end-user market.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
