After a hiatus of nearly 13 years, the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) reintroduced its sintering Short Course, which took place from 18 – 20 March 2012 in Helsingborg, Sweden.


Participants at the EPMA’s 2012 Sintering Course

The two-day course on “Sintering – Fundamentals and Mass Production” attracted 65 engineers and scientists from throughout Europe, along with 12 speakers drawn from industry and academia. The course examined the practical capabilities and applications of sintering technology as applied to the powder metallurgy process.

Lectures included: Fundamentals of Sintering – Theory and Practice; Sintering Atmospheres – Thermodynamics, Selection and Production; Analysis of a Typical Sintering Belt Furnace; Debinding/Delubing/Cooling and Sinter hardening, amongst others.

Participants had the opportunity to discuss and explore problems and case studies with the finest experts in their field.

“We are delighted with the success of this course,” said Jonathan Wroe, EPMA Executive Director, “and we are planning to run another one next year”.

Further information on the 2013 Short Course and its content will be available on the EPMA website in the autumn.
