Hoeganaes Corporation receives technical paper awards at PM2014 World Congress

June 24, 2014

Each year, two exceptional contributions to the Metal Powder Industries Federation’s (MPIF) PM Conference technical programme are honoured through the Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award and the Excellence in Metallography Award.

Hoeganaes Corporation, based in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, USA, won both these awards for papers presented at the PowderMet 2013 conference held in Chicago, June 24-27. During a ceremony at this year’s PM2014 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials held in Orlando, Florida, Hoeganaes Corporation was presented with the awards.

The MPIF presented the Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award to Christopher Schade and Tom Murphy of Hoeganaes Corporation, with Alan Lawley and Roger Doherty of Drexel University, for their paper, “The Influence of Silicon on the Mechanical Properties and Hardenability of PM Steels.”

The award, it was stated, exemplifies Hoeganaes’ continued dedication to the advancement of PM technology, evidenced by the fact that Hoeganaes has won the Outstanding Technical Paper Award five times in the last ten years.

Murphy and Schade, with Hoeganaes Corporation’s Bruce Lindsley, also won APMI International’s Excellence in Metallography award for their paper, “A Metallographic Examination into Fatigue Crack Initiation and Growth in Ferrous PM Materials.” This award represents the second consecutive year that a Hoeganaes team has won the metallography award and the third time in the past five years.

Both papers can be downloaded directly from the Hoeganaes website here.
