Only a few days left to submit abstracts for World PM2020, AMPM2020 and Tungsten2020

November 6, 2019

The deadline for submitting an abstract for inclusion in either the 2020 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (WorldPM2020), the 2020 Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference (AMPM2020) or the 10th International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials (Tungsten2020), is November 15.

Organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), all the events will take place in Montréal, Canada, from June 27 – July 1, 2020.

WorldPM2020

WorldPM2020 is held once every six years in North America and this will be the second time that the congress will be co-located with Tungsten2020 and AMPM2020. The technical programme co-chairmen Blaine Stebick, Phoenix Sintered Metals LLC and Carl Blais, Laval University, request abstracts covering the latest developments in Powder Metallurgy materials, processes, and applications.

Suggested topics for WorldPM2020 paper submissions include:

  • Design & modeling of PM materials, components & processes
  • Particulate production
  • General compaction & forming processes
  • Powder Injection Moulding (metals & ceramics)
  • Pre-sintering & sintering
  • Secondary operations
  • Materials
  • Refractory metals, carbides & ceramics

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
