Showcasing innovative, high-end advanced technology from all over Sweden and the Scandinavian region, the two day exhibition was a focus for Automotive Engineering; Additive Manufacturing; Advanced Materials and the Smart Factory. The seminar programme featured presentations from Microsoft, GE Additive and Siemens, to name but a few companies that contributed to the events success. There was also a dedicated Additive Manufacturing seminar that took place within the event on the 27 March 2019.
The two exhibition days attracted over 2000 attendees, helping to generate a number of discussions with end users from Volvo, Ericsson and Saab, through to academics from research institutes such as Chalmers University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology about the benefits of the Powder Metal (PM) process and how components using PM can be included in future applications. There were also some EPMA Members present at the show, with representatives from Digital Metal and GKN Sinter Metals in attendance.
EPMA staff distributed a number of its range of Introduction to Additive Manufacturing, Hot Isostatic Pressing, Metal Injection Moulding and Press & Sinter brochures, as well as the Spotlight on PM case studies booklets. There were a number of discussions surrounding this year’s Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition regarding its unique proposition in Europe, for enabling networking with the entire PM industry in one location during 2019.
“Attending the Advanced Engineering Sweden Show was beneficial in enabling EPMA to generate new leads and introduce PM to a wider geographical audience”, explained Andrew Almond, EPMA’s Marketing Manager. “There was positive conversations with a number of advanced technology users, who expressed interest with what PM can do for their future applications.”
The leads made during the event will be passed onto the relevant EPMA Members for follow up in due course.
The EPMA will also be exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering UK event, NEC, Birmingham, later in the year on 30-31 October 2019.
