The Powder Metallurgy Association of India (PMAI), organiser of PM15 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials & Exhibition, has reported that the event is progressing well and is expected to be another successful conference.

PM15, taking place January 19-21, 2015 in Mumbai, India, will be opened by India’s Defence Minister, Hon. Manohar Parrikar, who is a graduate in metallurgy from IIT Bombay. The PMAI states that there are plans to introduce a defence applications theme in the exhibition.

Several new awards have been announced, one of which being for the best paper presented by students and young professionals at PM15 with a top prize of an all-expenses paid attendance to an overseas PM exhibition or conference.

Each year the PMAI recognises those who have contributed to the science and practice of Powder Metallurgy through its PMAI Fellowship Award. In 2015 Hans Söderhjelm, Vice President, Marketing & Product Development, Höganäs AB, Sweden, and Luigi Alzati, Product Manager at Imersys Graphite & Carbon, Switzerland, will receive the honour.  

Exhibitors at PM15 currently include Sacmi, Dorst, Makin Metal Powder, SMS Meer, Fluidtherm, Imersys, Hoganas, Rio Tinto, Pometon, Ametek and Osterwalder along with several parts makers and defence procurement agencies. The organisers are keen to remind anyone interested in exhibiting that due to an expansion in the exhibition floor space there are now a number of booths still available.
