September 18, 2019

The Powder Metallurgy Association of India (PMAI), Mumbai, is organising a Powder Metallurgy Short Course (PMSC 19) which will run from September 26–29 in the Department of Metallurgy and Materials Science, at the College of Engineering Pune. The PMSC curriculum will cover the complete portfolio of Powder Metallurgy technologies. 

Participants on the course are expected to acquire a fundamental understanding of the science and practice of Powder Metallurgy as well as the full breadth of the subject. At the close of the course, participants will be tested and issued a certificate by PMAI. The topics covered on the course are:

  • Powder production
  • Characterisation of powders
  • Consolidation of powders
  • Design and fabrication of dies and tooling
  • Sintering
  • Characterisation and evaluation of sintered component
  • Powder Injection Moulding (metal and ceramic)
  • Sintering furnaces and atmospheres
  • Heat treatment & other downstream processes & equipment
  • Quality in PM manufacturing
  • Porous PM materials
  • Advanced ceramics and composites
  • Aerospace and defence materials
  • PM in nuclear engineering and energy generation
  • PM in biomaterials
  • Friction materials
  • Additive Manufacturing

On the fourth day of the course, participants will visit Renishaw’s Pune Center for a demonstration of metal Additive Manufacturing technologies. 

Registration details are available via PMAI’s website. Course places are limited to sixty students and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
