The five-day residential training course will be a mix of lectures, given by experts drawn from both industry and academia, laboratory work, group discussion, problem solving and a factory tour.
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.
