The opening keynote presentations at MPIF’s PowderMet 2012 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, Nashville, USA, June 10-13, will this year focus on the American automotive industry. A presentation by Drew WInter, Editor-in-Chief at WardsAuto World Magazine will be followed by a presentation from Jae Hoon Oh, Principal Research Engineer at Hyundai & Kia Corporate R&D Centre in Korea.   


Winter’s keynote entitled ‘America’s New Auto Industry’ will identify the potential for automotive production in North America. “With the strong Yen hindering exports from Japan and Europe’s economy struggling, North America is looking more and more like the place to build new vehicles and high-value components such as engines and transmissions,” state the organisers.

The follow-up to this keynote will be a newly announced presentation by Jae Hoon Oh, ‘Hyundai’s Perspectives on Growth in North America and the Future for PM’, which promises to offer an essential view of the challenges and opportunities for the Powder Metallurgy industry.

The conference Opening General Session will also include welcome comments by MPIF Executive Director/CEO C. James Trombino, CAE, and MPIF President Matthew Bulger. An overview of the annual MPIF State-of-the-Industry Report highlighting industry business conditions, technology trends, and markets for powder metallurgy and particulate materials will also be presented.
