EPMA News

European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has hired Mr. Bruno Vicenzi as a Technical Manager to bolster the EPMA’s Technical Team in the face of Dr. Olivier Coube stepping down as Technical Director at the end of February 2019.

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) who organise the annual Euro PM Congress & Exhibition have signed a multi-year contract with StandOut, also known as Expoxx Messebau GmbH, who have previously been contracted on past Euro/World PM Events, to provide shell scheme stand building services and related exhibition furniture supply on this year’s and future Euro PM Congress & Exhibition events.

Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition, Europe's annual powder metallurgy congress and exhibition, is set to make its first visit to the Netherlands and is being held in Maastricht, 13 - 16 October 2019. But why should your company exhibit?

Registration is now open for the 2019 Functional Materials (FM) seminar which will be hosted in Bremen, Germany from 3 - 4 April 2019.

Every year the EPMA launches an anonymous trends survey to track the general trends of various sectors in terms of sales trends, future trends, capacity and prospect. The survey can be filled out online within a few minutes.

2018 has seen the formation of a new EPMA Sectoral Group, coming 5-years after the formation of the last Sectoral Group, EuroAM. The European Functional Material Sectoral Group or EuroFM as it will also be known, was created after the EPMA's Functional Materials Seminar held in Jülich, Germany, earlier this year.

At the start of December 2018 EPMA exhibited at the International CTI Symposium – Automotive Drivetrains Expo which took place in Berlin’s Estrel Convention Center. The 2-day event combined technical sessions with three exhibition areas all centred on the automotive powertrain sector.

The new EPMA Newsletter, Issue #115, is now ready for download. EPMA Members can download a copy via the Newsletters page. 

The European Powder Metallurgy Association has organized a Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition, at both Masters and Doctorate levels, every two years since 1998, and annually since 2016. The 2019 competition has now been launched, and is accepting entries at www.epma.com/thesiscompetition.

The 2nd edition of the SUPREME project newsletter is now available.

Registration is now open for the 2019 HIP seminar which will be hosted in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium from 11 - 12 February 2019. The title of the seminar is 'Conventional HIP and Rapid Cool HIP:  Developments in Material Property and Microstructural Relationships'. 

The EPMA and Euro AM Group will be exhibiting at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, distributing the latest versions of the Introduction to Additive Manufacturing, Press & Sinter, Hot Isostatic Pressing, and Metal Injection Moulding from Stand A20 in Hall 3.1.

European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has again looked to recognise the significant contribution to the PM industry’s development from the scientific/academic community through its annual Fellowship Award.

The winners of the EPMA Powder Metallurgy Component Awards 2018 were honoured during the Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition Plenary Session which took place Monday 15 October in Bilbao, Spain. 

Bilbao, the capital of the Basque Country in northern Spain is well known for its Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum that helped in the revitalisation of the once industrial city to be the cultural location it is today. In the PM circles, Bilbao will also be known as the host of this year’s Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition, 14-18 October 2018.

The EPMA's latest range of component and sector specific publications will be present at this year's TCT show at Birmingham's NEC, September 25-27th, including the updated second edition Intoduction to Additive Manufacturing brochure, from Stand S49 alongside MTC.

EPMA are proud to announce the 2019 HIP seminar which will be hosted in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium from 11 - 12 February 2019. The title of the seminar is Conventional HIP and Rapid Cool HIP:  Developments in Material Property and Microstructural Relationships.

Proceedings Update

As part of ongoing efforts to increase the online presence of past and current Euro PM proceedings, EPMA have recently made proceedings from Euro PM2017 available to purchase online as individual PDF downloads for €30 each (EPMA members) / €35 each (non-members).

EPMA have uploaded the final edition of the 2018 Key Figures to the EPMA.com member area.

European Powder Metallurgy Associations (EPMA) annual Euro PM Congress & Exhibition, which this year is taking place in Bilbao, Spain, has attracted a record number of abstracts, resulting in one of the largest Euro PM Technical Programmes to date.

Euro PM2018 Congress has recorded over 300 abstracts provided by the Powder Metallurgy community, an increase of over 30% compared to previous years Euro PM Events. The high number of submitted abstracts will make for a busy and industrious Technical Programme and help to showcase how the different areas of powder metallurgy – Additive Manufacturing/Hard Materials and Diamond Tools/Hot Isostatic Pressing/Metal Injection Moulding and conventional Press & Sinter are all creating advantages for the components and processes they are involved with.
