Registration is now open for the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA)’s Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) Seminar, which will take place in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, February 11–12, 2019. The deadline for registration is January 9, 2019.
The title of the 2019 seminar is ‘Conventional HIP and Rapid Cool HIP: Developments in Material Property and Microstructural Relationships.’ The seminar programme will feature presentations and case studies from industry experts, as well as a site visit to Engineered Pressure Systems International (EPSI) in Temse, Belgium.
Those interested in presenting a paper at the seminar are invited to contact the EPMA. Currently, the list of speakers and topics is as follows:
- Influence of HIPing temperatures & cooling rate on the development of the properties of IN738LC, CM247LC and IN718, Professor Moataz Attallah, University of Birmingham
