UK forum to promote the engineering applications of Powder Metallurgy

January 1, 2013

January 1, 2013

Powder Metallurgy based manufacturing is enjoying a resurgence of interest, with the drive for near net shape components with increased complexity and more predictable / uniform properties increasing the potential application of Powder Metallurgy as the manufacturing route of choice across many sectors.

A forum, attracting some of the UK’s leading exponents in the field, takes place in Leeds on 21 Mar 2013, It will illustrate the range of powder processes on offer and the potential they have for high integrity, cost competitive, near net components which are becoming increasingly used in product applications as widespread as aerospace, transport, power generation and medical.

The forum will be opened with a presentation by Dr John Dunkley, Chairman of Atomising Systems, Chair of the Particulate Engineering Committee of the IOM3 and co-editor of the journal Powder Metallurgy. Dr Dunkley will then be followed by presentations from leading organisations including Rolls-Royce, Bodycote, William Beckett, Egide, Laser Cladding and the Mercury Centre.

The organisers state that PM is a key manufacturing technology which is finding and increasing focus across many key sectors through a unique set of performance advantages.  An awareness of the potential will be invaluable for many manufacturing companies both from the perspective of a potential manufacturing route but also from possible future competitiveness with more current manufacturing processes.

This event is free for AMRC Forum (NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum) members and £30 inc. VAT for non-members.

There will be the chance for organisations to exhibit their products and services on the day. Tables and chairs are provided with room for a small pop up stand, literature and products.
