The Systematic Approach to Quality Management in Powder Metallurgy (PM) Seminar will mainly focus on the quality of Powder Metallurgy (PM) Structural Parts. PM Structural Parts are mainly produced by mixing, die pressing and heat (sintering) powder alloys before possible post processing. The main market for iron based PM Structural Parts is the automotive industry. The seminar will focus on the PM Structural Parts processes but most of the presented approaches can be applied to other sectors.
