The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that it will be launching three new Club Projects in partnership with a number of organisations. The projects will focus on micro-mechanical testing, resistivity of harmetals and quality testing of metal powders for selective laser melting.

  • Micro-mechanical testing: a quantitative method for measuring local mechanical properties in hardmetals (MicroMech) in partnership with CEIT San Sebastian, NPL London and UPC Barcelona. The proposed project is an exploratory study to assess the ability of microsample testing to measure mechanical properties of hardmetals at the local scale. The project will begin with a meeting planned on the 23rd October in San Sebastian.
  • Resistivity of hardmetals – part two (RoH2) in partnership with NPL, London and CEIT, San Sebastian. This project proposes to follow on from the former RoH project by addressing new objectives (Contiguity, Resistivity Property Map, Co alloy research for input data to modelling studies, Binderless pure carbides, Modelling – input data sensitivity and model upgrade).
  • Quality test for selective laser melting (SLM) Powder (SLM-POWD) in partnership with Fraunhofer IFAM, Bremen. This project proposes to study the applicability of three metal powders for the Additive Manufacturing process of Selective Laser Melting. It also aims to set up guidelines on how to characterise and specify AM powder for SLM and how to find the right laser parameters to process powder with SLM.
