The 2018 World Conference on Powder Metallurgy, World PM2018, organised by China Powder Metallurgy Alliance (CPMA), will take place September 16 – 20, 2018, in Beijing, China. The event marks the first time that the World PM series has been held in China and will give those from outside the country an insight into PM, MIM and AM developments in one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

The conference will cover the full range of Powder Metallurgy topics, ranging from metal powder production and technology, powder compaction, sintering and post-processing to Metal Injection Moulding, cemented carbides, porous materials, Additive Manufacturing and the design and simulation of Powder Metallurgy parts. The conference is expected to include over 500 presentations, giving a detailed overview of the latest developments in Powder Metallurgy.

In addition to the conference, there will be an exhibition held over four days. In excess of 200 international exhibitors are expected to participate, providing the ideal opportunity to network with material and equipment suppliers, part producers and end-users.

The World PM2018 exhibition is being managed on behalf of the PM2018 organising committee by IRIS Exhibitions Service Co., Ltd, organiser of the annual PM China exhibition series held in Shanghai each Spring. Exhibition sales enquiries should be addressed to Maggie Song, [email protected].

Those wishing to submit abstracts should note the submission deadline of October 15, 2017.
