According to the EPMA, Euro PM2017 will feature an in-depth technical conference programme alongside an exhibition showcasing the latest developments from the PM global supply chain. In addition to the main programme, a number of EPMA working group meetings and workshops will be held, as well as special interest seminars covering the main sectors of the Powder Metallurgy industry.

Plenary speakers for this year’s conference include:

Welcome from the EPMA President: The European PM Industry – Current Status

Philippe Gundermann, President, EPMA

An update on the current status of the European Powder Metallurgy Industry, including raw material trends, an overview of key PM industrial sectors such as automotive & aerospace and a look at some of the advantages PM can leverage in the coming years.

Powder Metallurgy at BHGE Turbomachinery Process Solutions: Advanced Manufacturing for a Smart Factory

Massimo Giannozzi  Baker Hughes, a GE Company, Italy

Powder Metallurgy is continuously raising interest in different industrial sectors driven by the effort of cost reduction and speed required by the market. Lower machining cost, reduction of wastage, uniformity and isotropy of the material properties are just some of the benefits PM is driving versus conventional manufacturing methods. Several components of BHGE gas turbine and compressors are today manufactured by PM in order to reduce time and prototype cost, enable serial production and provide tailored solutions to customer requests.

This speech describes the PM technology in use at BHGE TPS and the development process enabling the components serial production. Presenting an overview of future challenges and needs in terms of engineering expertise, material science and equipment capability, and a look at efforts to address cost and lead time reduction.

The plenary session will also include the presentation of the following EPMA Awards:

  • PM Thesis Competition (Sponsored by Höganäs AB)
  • Keynote Paper Awards (Sponsored by Taylor & Francis)
  • Distinguished Service Award
  • Fellowship Award

Tickets for full delegates include a Congress Dinner, to be held on October 4 at the Alfa Romeo Museum, Milan. The dinner schedule will include an after-hours tour of the museum and 4D cinema experience, concluding with a seated dinner in the Alfa Romeo Cafe.

The full conference programme is available via the event website.
