EPMA’s 2022 Functional Materials virtual seminar to take place in February

January 26, 2022

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA)’s 2022 Functional Materials seminar is set to take place in a virtual capacity on the mornings of February 22 and 23. The seminar will be devoted to Powder Metallurgy magnets, bulk metallic glasses and extreme application materials – functional materials families which are central in the move towards sustainability.

PM magnets are increasingly important as they are a key part of the electrical revolution. Nowadays, the attention also from the institutional stakeholders in Europe is very strong as the supply chain is critically dependent on supply from China and much effort is being put in trying to secure a sustainable supply for the future.

Metallic glasses exhibit surprising mechanical and physical properties. They can be prepared and shaped by PM and show great potential of application which some of the event’s speakers will demonstrate.

PM can also obtain other special materials & shapes for challenging environments like in nuclear plants or high temperature/corrosion processes (e.g., high temperature oxidation resistant and mechanically resistant alloys, radiation shields, etc.).

As a transversal session, in addition to the lectures, the seminar will also feature a discussion, focused on functional materials and sustainability, that will involve many of the speakers. This will help highlight priorities, possible developments, and applications, in view of the upcoming funding opportunities.

The deadline for registration is February 15.

    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.
