The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will soon launch a club project on ‘Stiffness Moduli of Hardmetals’ in partnership with the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL), London, as the required number of industrial partners has now been reached.

The project will have two objectives:

1) To conduct research using the standard impact excitation method on a wide range of hardmetal grades, resulting in a report describing the results of testing and the levels of discrimination that impact excitation can achieve between hardmetal grades.

2) To develop a simple table-top method using similar excitation principles, which can be delivered to project members for subsequent use with in-house measurements.

The research will be jointly funded by NPL and the industry project partners.
