The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will launch a new club project on ‘High Temperature Sintering – analysis of commercially available alloys (processes and properties)’ in partnership with an industrial consulting team consisting of Dr Volker Arnhold and Dr Vladislav Kruzhanov, as well as the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Trento, Italy.
The key steps of the project will be:
- Manufacturing test parts of several commercial alloys
- Sintering in industrial furnaces at club project member facilities
- Testing several mechanical and dimensional properties for a quick evaluation
- Evaluation of experimental results and Final Report
Work on the project will begin later this year and involves eight industrial partners: GKN Sinter Metals, AMES, Schunk, Hoeganaes Corp, Eisenmann, PMG Holding, Riedhammer and Höganäs AB. In total, it is expected to cost €40,000, with a maximum Individual Project Fee of €5,000 per participant.
According to the EPMA’s announcement, there are currently some openings still available for new participants on the project. For more information, contact Dr Olivier Coube ([email protected]).
