The Technical Programme for the PM2012 Powder Metallurgy World Congress & Exhibition, to be held at the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Centre, Japan, on October 14-18, has just been released.
The congress will be opened with a special session devoted to recent trends in competing manufacturing technologies such as casting, forging, and fine blanking. This will be followed by a four-day technical programme containing close to 500 technical papers in oral and poster sessions.
All aspects of powder metallurgy materials and processing will be covered. The Technical programme will also contain Special Seminars organised by the Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA), a series of case studies on environment and energy saving, and the presentation of the JPMA Awards.
There will also be a special session on the application of PM magnets in electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Full details on the Technical Programme and congress registration are available online.
