Registration is now open for the European Powder Metallurgy Association’s 2019 Functional Materials seminar, set to run in Bremen, Germany, from April 3–4, 2019. The two day event will take place at the Fraunhofer-Institut – IFAM, and include presentations from leading researchers and PM parts makers. The deadline for registration is February 27.

Functional materials are defined as those that bring a distinct physical property into a component, such as magnetism, caloric effects, electronic conductivity, and others. Whatever the functionality they provide, they are seen as key properties with regard to targeted applications. With growing understanding of powder-based processes, the desire to implement functionality into components also increases, making functional materials an important part in current and future applications and developments.

The seminar will be split into three parts:

  • Processing of functional materials
  • Functional material and energy conversion
  • Functional material and energy storage

A showcase of components which make use of functional materials will also be on display during the seminar. Companies wishing to include their component(s) are advised to contact Sabine Hazoumé, EPMA Events and Project Co-Coordinator ([email protected]).
