New EPMA Club Project to explore high temperature sintering

April 3, 2017

April 3, 2017

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced it will launch a new Club Project focused on High Temperature Sintering (HTS) and dealing with the analysis of commercially available alloys, their processes and properties. The project will be coordinated in partnership with an industrial consulting group (Dr Volker Arnhold and Dr Vladislav Kruzhanov) and the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Trento, Italy.

By partnering players from across the supply chain, the EPMA has expressed its hope that the five-month project will be a driving force for the Powder Metallurgy industry to analyse the best commercially available alloy system for HTS and to compare several existing furnace concepts.

The key steps of the project will be:

  • Manufacturing test parts from several commercial alloys,
  • Sintering in industrial furnaces
  • Testing several mechanical and dimensional properties for quick evaluation
  • Evaluation of experimental results and production of a Final Report

Prospective participants can request more information by contacting Dr Olivier Coube ([email protected]), or by visiting the EPMA’s project website.
