The organisers of Ceramitec 2012, which takes place at the New Munich Trade Fair Center from May 22-25, 2012, have announced that once again the event will include a focus on Powder Metallurgy.
Information on the current status of powder metallurgy and on the outlook for the future of new technologies in this segment of industry will be presented by Germany´s Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie. A Powder Metallurgy forum, entitled “PM today and tomorrow”, will take place on May 22, 2012, and will be chaired by Prof. em. Dr.-Ing. Paul Beiss and organised by Hans Kolaska of FPM.
Experts from research and industry will give short lectures, each of around 15 minutes in duration, addressing topical issues in PM production, and setting out the opportunities for the future of key techniques in powder metallurgy.
An open discussion with the audience is then planned following each lecture. Techniques such as the hot isostatic pressing (HIP) of PM parts, microwave debinding of hard metals, rapid sintering of large-area components, PVC and CVD coatings on hard metals, and Metal Injection Moulding technology will also be presented. Lectures will be in German and simultaneous interpreting into English will be provided.
