PowderMet 2013, the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials takes place from June 24 – 27 in Chicago, USA.


PowderMet 2013 will be held at the

Sheraton Chicago Hotel

Organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), the conference’s Technical Program sees over 175 worldwide industry experts presenting the latest developments in Powder Metallurgy. In addition, a number of management-focused sessions/programmes will be offered throughout the conference for MPIF members.

A parallel trade exhibition features 100 booths showcasing leading suppliers of powder metallurgy and particulate materials processing equipment, powders, and products.

Pick PM Day: A special programme for end-users

With the aim of attracting potential users of PM technology to the event, a special programme for current or prospective users of PM components who have not previously attended a PowderMet conference is being organised. This Pick PM Day, which is free to qualified invited guests, will be held Wednesday, June 26.

This full-day event will offer a brief yet thorough introduction to the technology of PM, delivered by a distinguished group of PM experts who will cover these topics: Introduction to PM, Material Standards and Properties, Design of PM Parts, and Making the Move to PM.

Award-Winning PM Parts

Winners of MPIF’s 2013 PM Design Excellence Awards will be announced at a luncheon on Wednesday, June 26. The annual competition features application-based award categories such as automotive (engine, transmission, chassis), aerospace, lawn & garden/off-highway, hand tool/recreation, industrial motors/controls & hydraulics, hardware/appliances, medical/dental, and electronic/electrical. All parts submitted in this year’s competition will be on display at the trade exhibit during the entire conference.
