The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced the winner of its 2018 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award, selected from manuscripts presented at POWDERMET2018 in San Antonio, Texas, June 17-20, 2018. This year’s winning paper is ‘Monitoring of Powder Homogeneity During Double-Cone Blending’, by Alex Wartenberg, Sierra Mirtes, and Chris Schade, GKN Hoeganaes, and Sarah Ackermann, C-Therm Technologies Incorporated.

The paper is published in the conference proceedings, Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials–2018, which can be found by visiting the MPIF Publications portal. The paper itself is available on the Outstanding Technical Paper Award page on the MPIF site here.

The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award (renamed in 2009), was established in 1993 to recognise authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications. The authors will receive their award plaques during POWDERMET2019, June 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

APMI International, the American Powder Metallurgy Institute, has named the winner of its Excellence in Metallography Award. For this award, APMI International selects a winning technical paper to recognise individuals responsible for excellence in the metallography used in scientific and technical written communications.

This year’s winning paper is ‘Comparison of Binder Jetting Additive Manufacturing to Press and Sinter 316L Stainless Steel’ by Alexander Zwiren, Thomas F Murphy, GKN Hoeganaes. The winning paper is available to read on the APMI International website here.
