The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced the launch of its prestigious EPMA Powder Metallurgy Component Awards 2016. The competition is open to EPMA members who can demonstrate major achievements in the successful commercialisation or innovation of a product, taking into account cost savings, improved quality and stimulation of further usage of PM technology.
The awards will be presented during the World PM2016 Congress & Exhibition to be held in Hamburg, Germany 9-13 October 2016. A short video on each winner will be prepared by the EPMA and all entries will be displayed as part of an Awards Showcase in the World PM2016 Exhibition.
“The EPMA Powder Metallurgy Component Awards 2016 competition will provide an excellent opportunity for companies both to demonstrate their achievements and to promote the benefits of using the powder metallurgy process,” stated Joan Hallward, Awards Coordinator. “Over the years, the EPMA Awards have done much to promote and stimulate the interest in PM technology and we hope that all members will seriously consider submitting an entry in this World Congress year.”
There will be four categories for the 2016 awards:
Hot Isostatic Pressing
Metal Injection Moulding
PM Structural (including Hard Materials and Diamond Tool parts)
All entries must submitted via the EPMA Powder Metallurgy Component Awards 2016 website no later than May 6, 2016.
