EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School 2009: Call for Students

Following the success of the European Powder Metallurgy Association’s (EPMA) EU funded PM Training Courses, the association has announced the 2009 PM Summer School.

The event will take place in Košice, Slovakia, from Monday 22nd June to Friday 26th June 2009. Students will benefit from over 25 presentations covering both conventional PM and Metal Injection Moulding. Half a day of laboratory work will hosted by the Institute of Materials Research, Slovak Academy of Sciences.

“The EPMA Summer School is particularly designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists drawn from a wide range of disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing and metallurgy” said Joan Hallward, Project Coordinator. She went on to add “The course will offer the students an advanced teaching of Powder Metallurgy’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial figures in Europe.”

The course is open to graduates under the age of 35 who are citizens of the EU or an EU associated state. The participation fee for the 5-day training course is €295 per person. For this non-refundable fee participants will receive all relevant course documents plus refreshments, meals and accommodation.

Previous EPMA summer schools were over-subscribed and the association therefore urges all applications to be submitted in good time, with a final closing date of Monday 6th April 2009.

Further details including a course programme and online application form can be found at www.epma.com/summerschool

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.
