EPMA Courses 2020
Please see below for details of forthcoming EPMA training, seminars and events.
EPMA Hot Isostatic Pressing Seminar: The Use of HIP to Improve Safety and Innovation Offshore
EPMA's 2020 HIP Seminar, "The use of HIP to improve safety and innovation offshore" will be hosted at Energy Valley (Research Center) in Oslo, Norway and will feature presentations from industry majors as well as a site visit of DNV-GL and the opportunity to network and discuss the future of the HIP market.
EPMA Functional Materials Seminar: Applications of Powder Based Functional Materials
EPMA's 2020 Functional Materials seminar will present examples of actual and future applications of PM functional components, explaining the key requirement to provide the functionality, as well as covering the fabrication, structure and properties of the material/ component.
EPMA Press & Sinter Seminar: Opportunities for PM due to Electrification
With a push towards wider use of electrical or hybrid vehicles, new supply chains, sometimes from completely different sectors, are establishing as competitors to PM. To keep a good position as suppliers for the OEMs and take advantage of this opportunity, PM companies need to adapt and put focus into different areas, like understanding the real competitiveness in terms of global life cycle assessments, investigating the use of PM materials like Soft Magnetic Composites and Functional Materials in the new propulsion engines and automotive components, improving weight reduction and noise control by the use of PM parts, improving the performance to make new heavy load applications available (e.g. for transmission gears).
EPMA Metal Additive Manufacturing Seminar: Powder Based Metal AM Technologies
This intensive three-day seminar will be hosted by the Fraunhofer IGCV in Augsburg and include industrial visits to companies in the AM-ecosystem around Augsburg and Munich. Addressed topics will be the basics on powder based metal AM technologies and the whole AM manufacturing chain with a special focus on multi-material processing and environmental health and safety (EHS) issues.
The SUMMEREV 2020 meeting will emphasise what practical steps are being taken to process innovative compositions, what new ideas are being explored to measure their suite of relevant properties and what insights the modelling community can provide to take the subject forward. The aim is to bring the hard material research community together to discuss current activity in methods used to manufacture innovative materials and to characterise properties, both physical and mechanical.
The event will take place in Aachen with the collaboration of RWTH Aachen University.
SUPREME Project Workshop
The SUPREME project aims at optimising powder metallurgy processes throughout the value chain. It focuses on a combination of fast-growing industrial production routes and advanced ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
The SUPREME experts’ workshop will be organised based on SUPREME related subjects: Efficient raw material production, Efficient metal powder production process, Optimized 3D manufacturing metal processes, Optimized near-net shape processes, Real-time monitoring of process energy & resource efficiency, Use-cases & impact demonstration, Life cycle assessment & eco-innovation.
EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer School 2020
The EPMA PM Summer Schools have been designed to offer participants from all parts of Europe an advanced teaching of PM’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial personnel in Europe. It is also a rare opportunity to stimulate direct technical discussions by young scientists and engineers who are interested in broadening their knowledge through interaction with senior figures in the PM industry.
PM Life is a training programme to help develop the future of Powder Metallurgy and help provide a comprehensive training course to those looking for a related career.
The course will offer students the chance to either attend the full programme to learn about the whole industry or pick topics to help further their knowledge in certain areas.
Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition
Europe's annual powder metallurgy congress and exhibition is set to make its first visit to Portugal in 2020, and is being held in Lisbon 4-7 October 2020. Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition, which is organised by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), is being held at the Lisbon Congress Centre (CCL), a modern purpose built venue, easily reachable from the centre.
Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition is the place for the powder metallurgy (PM) industry in Europe to meet in 2020. The 4-day event, which contains a programme of sector specific meetings, technical presentations, special interest seminars, an industry exhibition and factory tours, will cover all aspects of PM and related sectors.
Euro PM2020 Congress
The Euro PM2020 Congress provides delegates a range of presentations to attend on subjects from Additive Manufacturing (AM), Functional Materials, Hard Materials and Diamond Tools, Hot Isostatic Pressing, Metal Injection Moulding, New Materials, Processes and Applications and Press and Sinter.
Euro PM2020 Exhibition
The Euro PM2020 Exhibition, held Monday to Wednesday, represents the entire PM supply chain and contains a busy exhibition area representing all PM related industrial sectors, companies from raw material suppliers, furnace equipment manufacturers and tooling producers, who will be available to discuss new and potential business opportunities with delegates and exhibition visitors alike. The exhibition area is well located, a short distance from the technical session rooms and includes Coffee Areas and access to the Lunch and Poster Presentation Areas, which will allow for productive networking opportunities.
