The Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie (FPM) has published the technical programme for the 32nd Hagen Symposium scheduled to take place at the Hagen Town Hall, November 28-29, 2013.
The programme will include presentations on modern methods for quality control in mass production processes such as Powder Metallurgy, including ferrous PM, hardmetals, ceramic and Metal Injection Moulding, plus methods for corrosion testing, surface analysis, and process modelling. Around 60 organisations from industry and research are expected to take part in the exhibition which will run alongside the symposium.
The 32nd Hagen Symposium will include the presentation of the Skaupy Prize 2013 to Josef Seyrkammer of Miba Sinter Austria GmbH in Vorchdorf, Austria. Seyrkammer will present a keynote paper entitled “Road to Success for Powder Metallurgy” in which he will review some of the technology highlights during a career of almost 50 years with Miba Sinter, and will point to some of the challenges for the future.
The 2013 Hagen Symposium will also see the official retirement of Hans Kolaska, who has for nearly two decades been responsible for the coordination and organisation of the highly successful German language symposium on behalf of the FPM and the Ausschuss für Pulvermetallurgie.
