The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), in conjunction with automotive benchmarking specialists A2Mac1, will showcase the wide range of Powder Metallurgy parts used in today’s automobiles at a special one-day event at A2Mac1’s facility in Hary, France, on January 15, 2020. In addition to identifying current PM applications, the organisers will highlight many other parts from the 2000 on display that could benefit from being produced by metal powder.  

Aimed at bringing PM parts makers and design engineers from the auto industry together, the event will include presentations from experts explaining the Powder Metallurgy process, its advantages and how it compares with competing technologies. Among those topics discussed will be what to consider when designing parts for PM, along with overviews of Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. A further presentation will look at what PM technology can bring to the design of future powertrains, be they hybrid or electric based. 

Participants will be able to learn more about the entries in the showcase and discuss one-to-one with the PM experts on hand during the day. An optional dinner, prior to the event on the evening of January 14, will also be open to those attending. 

The deadline for registration is January 7. For further information contact Sabine Hazoumé, EPMA’s Events & Project Co-ordinator ([email protected]).
