Hagen Symposium to focus on process efficiencies and special properties of PM materials

September 1, 2015

The Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie (FPM), the German trade association for Powder Metallurgy, has published the technical programme for the 34th Hagen Symposium scheduled to take place in Hagen, Germany, November 26-27, 2015.


The 34th Hagen Symposium is scheduled to take place

November 26-27, 2015 

The programme will embrace a wide range of PM processes such as rapid sintering, Additive Manufacturing, trends in hardmetal cutting tools, advanced PM aerospace alloys, ferrous structural parts, powder forged steels, magnetic materials and ceramics for filtration applications. Around 60 organisations from industry and research are expected to take part in the exhibition which will run alongside the symposium.

The symposium will include the presentation of the Skaupy Prize to Austrian scientist Professor Wolf-Dieter Schubert who heads the Research Group on the Metallurgy of the Less Common Metals at the Institute of Chemical Technology and Analytics, Vienna University of Technology.

Professor Schubert, who has devoted much of his working life to researching metallurgical aspects relating to tungsten carbide based hardmetals, will present his Skaupy Lecture on ‘Ultra-fine grain hardmetals – from powder to sintered tools’.  The lecture will cover powder production, the selection of grain growth inhibitors, alternative consolidation processes for ultra-fine grain hardmetals, and examples of applications.
