The 2014 Powder Metallurgy Technology and Business Forum took place at the HaiZhou Hotel from June 12-14 in Haining, Zhejiang Province. The conference, now in its seventh year, is one of the largest Powder Metallurgy (PM) events in China with over 600 attendees from 312 companies, including top 10 PM parts makers.
A presentation given by Oliver He, Hoeganaes Corporation’s Sales Manager for China and Taiwan, focused on the global forecast for PM material demand and global automotive production forecast.
In addition to meeting the demand for PM driven by light vehicle production, Oliver He stated, the PM industry is constantly expanding into new applications. New engine and transmission technologies, as well as industrial applications, provide potential market penetration and growth opportunities for PM materials.
James Shaul, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing at Hoeganaes, told Powder Metallurgy Review, “The forum presents an excellent opportunity for us to discuss business development activity centred on our Powder Metallurgy solutions and their relationship to the Automotive Industry. Hoeganaes Corporation was honoured to be invited back to present at this year’s event.”
The presentation concluded with an overview of Hoeganaes’ Technically Enhanced Powders (TEP). It was stated that these innovative materials, which are part of Hoeganaes’ AncorTech family of products, will lead the way in new advanced PM applications.
