EPMA takes its PM Summer School to Poland

July 20, 2014

The European Powder Metallurgy Association’s Powder Metallurgy Summer School took place at the University of Cracow, Poland, June I6 – 20, 2014. The popular event welcomed some 52 students from throughout Europe to the five day course coordinated by Professor José Torralba, Universidad Carlos Ill de Madrid, Spain, in conjunction with Professor Jan Kazior and his team from the University of Cracow.


Lectures included practical demonstrations

Participants had the opportunity to listen to, discuss and solve problems with PM experts drawn from both industry and academia.

Lectures were complemented by the University of Cracow’s laboratory facilities where students gained hands on experience looking at the technological properties of powders, compaction of powders and microhardness testing.

A site visit to the Sandvik Polska factory in Katowice was also organised for students.

Dates have not yet been finalised for the 2015 PM Summer School which will take place in Sheffield, United Kingdom.
