Registration opens for 2014 EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School

February 24, 2014

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that its 2014 Powder Metallurgy Summer School will be heading to Krakow, Poland, from June 16 – 20. The five-day residential course will be held at the Cracow University of Technology and offers students and engineers new to the Powder Metallurgy (PM) industry the chance to learn about the PM process and related sectors.

The summer school is hosted by Professor Jan Kazior and his team at the Cracow University of Technology and will include lectures presented by a range of experts drawn from both industry and academia.

“Summer Schools are very intense due to the depth and range of material covered during the five days,” stated Joan Hallward, EPMA Summer School Co-ordinator. “EPMA Summer Schools benefit from the close links between academia and PM industry personnel, which helps to provide a complete picture of the industry to the students.”

Topics to be covered at this year’s event will include the manufacture of metal powders, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), modelling, sintering and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems in the class room as well as get hands on experience in the University’s laboratories. There will also be a visit to a local PM component manufacturer.

Registration for the 2014 EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School is now open and the closing date for applications is 31 March 2014.
