The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will run its Design for Powder Metallurgy Seminar in Bologna, Italy, April 27-28, 2017. The two-day intensive training course is aimed at designers, particularly in the automotive sector, as well as end-users who wish to gain a more comprehensive idea of designing for the PM process.

The Design for PM Seminar will offer attendees an introduction to Powder Metallurgy and its various processes, the materials that can be used and a comparison against alternative manufacturing technologies and processes.

A number of presentations will focus on the mechanical properties and fatigue resistance of Powder Metallurgy components, as well as discussing the requirements for designing a PM gear. The programme will also feature specific application-focused case studies on products such as shock absorbers, gears and fatigue design.

The seminar will conclude with a visit to the Ducati Motorcycle Factory and a special dinner in Bologna on the evening of April 27.

The registration deadline has been extended to April 11.
