6th National Congress on Powder Metallurgy / 1st Ibero-American Powder Metallurgy Congress

Spain is the second largest producer of powder metallurgy (PM) components in the European Union. The first National Conference in PM took place in Madrid in 2006. Since then, it has been continuously growing. In this 6th edition in Ciudad Real 2017 will also include ceramic materials, as well as its expansion throughout to the whole iberoamerican community.

The main objective of this conference in PM is to keep the synergetic alliances established between the whole scientific and industrial community, as well as to create new ones. This meeting will provide a unique scenario for companies to share their R&D requirements and redirect the existing collaborations with the Universities and / or Technology Centers.


España es el segundo productor en componentes pulvimetalúrgicos en la Unión Europea, por detrás de Alemania. La tradición por la industria pulvimetalúrgica (PM) se inició en España en la década de 1950 con el crecimiento de los electrodomésticos, y más tarde la revolución del automóvil. Los sectores en los que hoy en día la PM es más representativa son la tecnología del prensado y sinterizado, con una producción industrial que alcanza unas 35.000 toneladas.

En España, además también se encuentra uno de los mayores productores europeos de piezas por Moldeo por Inyección de Metales (MIM). Estos datos reflejan, por un lado, el alto nivel tecnológico que tienen la industria PM en nuestro país, capaz de mantener estos niveles productivos, y por otro, la permanente necesidad de investigación e innovación de vanguardia que se apoya en los potentes grupos de investigación en PM que tenemos, y que permite que esta industria siga manteniendo renombre europeo y mundial.
