The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that registration to its 2016 PM Summer School is now open. The five-day residential training course will take place at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain, from June 27 to July 1, 2016.
The EPMA Summer School consists of a range of lectures presented by PM experts drawn from both industry and academia, and covers the whole range of Powder Metallurgy from powder to finished product. Topics to be covered include the manufacture of metal powders, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), modelling, sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), magnetic materials and metal Additive Manufacturing.
Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems in the classroom as well as gain hands on experience of various PM processes during laboratory sessions. There will also be a factory tour for participants.
This year’s Summer School will be coordinated by Dr Marco Actis Grande from the Politecnico di Torino and Dr Christian Gierl-Mayer of the Technical University of Vienna, who will jointly manage the technical content. Professor Vicente Amigó Borrás and his team at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia will host the event.
The Summer School is designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists from disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing or metallurgy. Graduates under 35 and who have obtained their degree from a European institution are eligible to apply.
