The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) reports that it recently attended the Advanced Engineering Sweden 2019 show in Mölndal, Sweden, March 27-28, 2019, where it actively promoted Powder Metallurgy to a range of Scandinavian industry. The two-day exhibition showcased innovative, high-end advanced technology from all over Sweden and the Scandinavian region, with a focus on automotive engineering; Additive Manufacturing; advanced materials and the smart factory.
During the show, the EPMA distributed a number of its publications, including the Introduction to Additive Manufacturing, Hot Isostatic Pressing, Metal Injection Moulding and Press & Sinter brochures, as well as the Spotlight on PM case studies booklets. There were also reportedly a number of discussions surrounding the Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition, set to be held this October in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
The seminar programme at Advanced Engineering Sweden featured presentations from Microsoft, GE Additive and Siemens. A dedicated Additive Manufacturing seminar also took place on March 27.
The two exhibition days attracted over 2,000 attendees, with visitors to the EPMA stand including end-users from Volvo, Ericsson and Saab, through to academics from research institutes such as Chalmers University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Some EPMA Member companies were also present at the show, with representatives from Digital Metal and GKN Sinter Metals in attendance.
“Attending the Advanced Engineering Sweden show was beneficial in enabling EPMA to generate new leads and introduce PM to a wider geographical audience,” stated Andrew Almond, the EPMA’s Marketing Manager. “There were positive conversations with a number of advanced technology users, who expressed interest in what PM can do for their future applications.”
The leads made during the event will be passed onto the relevant EPMA Members for follow up in due course. The EPMA stated that it will also be exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering UK event, NEC, Birmingham, UK, from October 30–31, 2019.
