Organisers of the recent PM2012 Powder Metallurgy World Congress & Exhibition held in Yokohama, Japan, from October 14-18, 2012, have posted photo galleries from the event on their website.
The event, jointly organised by the Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA) and Japan Society of Powder & Powder Metallurgy (JSPPM), attracted over 700 delegates and almost 7000 exhibition visitors who had come to learn about new global developments in PM technology.
Some 500 technical presentations were included in the oral and poster sessions and a lively accompanying exhibition featured PM producers, metal powder suppliers and equipment producers from 15 countries. There were also opportunities to participate in a variety of social events which portrayed traditional Japanese music, customs, culture and cuisine.
“I hope these pictures will remind you of the time we spent together in Yokohama,” stated Kazuyoshi Tsunoda, Chairman of the PM2012 Organising Committee.
