Hagen Symposium to focus on ‘Powder Metallurgy – Key to Mobility’
May 26, 2017
The 36th Hagen Symposium on Powder Metallurgy, to be organised by the Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie (FPM) in Hagen, Germany, November 30-December 1, 2017, will discuss the use of PM as a key manufacturing technology in transportation industries such as the automotive and aerospace sectors.
In addition to presentations on developments in sintered steels and fully dense powder forged components for conventional fuel-efficient vehicles with internal combustion engines, there will also be a focus on functional PM components for electric vehicles and developments in PM superalloys and light metal alloys used in the aerospace sector.
A number of presentations will feature Additive Manufacturing used for series production of alloy components for transportation, the development of PM materials in fuel cells used to power trucks and in lithium batteries, as well as the Metal Injection Moulding of recycled NdFeB powder to produce permanent magnets.
