EPMA Courses 2020
Please see below for details of forthcoming EPMA training, seminars and events.
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 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.
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).
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.
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.
Euro PM2020 Virtual Congress
Europe's annual Powder Metallurgy Congress and is set to make its debut as Virtual Congress in 2020, being held online 5-7 October 2020. Euro PM2020 Virtual Congress is organised by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA).
The 3-day event, which contains a programme of sector specific meetings, technical presentations, and special interest seminars, will cover all aspects of PM and related sectors.
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.
