European Powder Metallurgy Summer School to take place in Madrid, Spain, 5–9 July 2010

February 3, 2010

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) is planning a Powder Metallurgy Summer School, which will take place in Madrid, Spain. The course consists of a 5-day training programme from Monday, 5th July to Friday, 9th July 2010.

The EPMA Summer School is particularly designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists drawn from a wide range of disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing or metallurgy. The course will offer participants an advanced introduction to Powder Metallurgy’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial figures in Europe. Metal Injection Moulding technology will also be covered.

The participation fee for the whole event is €325 per person. For this non-refundable fee participants will receive all relevant course documents plus refreshments, meals and accommodation.

The course is open to graduates under the age of 35 who are citizens of the EU or an EU Associated State. The deadline for applications is 31st March 2010

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
