January 21, 2014

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced plans to launch two more Club Projects. The first is ‘Ultrasonic fatigue testing of hardmetals in the gigacycle regime – UFTH: Stage 2a’, and the second project is ‘Toughness of PM HIP Steels Phase 2’.

‘UFTH: Stage 2a’ will run in partnership with TU Vienna, University of Vienna, CEIT San Sebastian, UPC Barcelona and NPL London. After the success of the UFTH 1 and UFTH 2 projects, a new testing strategy will be tested in order to decrease the duration and cost of the testing and, at the same time, increase the range of tested grades and properties. The project is still open for participation to all organisations and is planned to commence in Q1 2014.

‘Toughness of PM HIP Steels Phase 2’, coordinated by the RWTH Aachen already has six companies confirming participation in the project. The project will be expanding work undertaken in the first phase, which completed in 2013, using laboratory testing of selected materials. It is anticipated the project will also start in Q1 2014.
