The event will host an anticipated programme of over 250 oral and poster papers that will cover all aspects of Powder Metallurgy including:
- Additive Manufacturing
- Functional Materials
- Hard Materials and Diamond Tools
- Hot Isostatic Pressing
- New Materials, Process and Applications
- Powder Injection Moulding
- Press & Sinter
EPMA Executive Director Lionel Aboussouan said “EPMA are looking forward to starting the next powder metal decade in Lisbon, by continuing the success of the recent Euro PM events in Milan, Bilbao and Maastricht. Within the programme there will be several special interest seminars covering all the main strands of the powder metallurgy industry, EPMA working group meetings and workshops on key topics of relevance to the industry. The EPMA Component Awards make a return to the event programme to help generate interest and stimulate the PM sector, showcasing the variety of components that can be manufactured using the powder metal process. Annual powder metal statistics will be presented during the plenary session, which will provide good insight into the PM sector.”
Within the 4-day schedule attendees will be introduced to the powder metallurgy industry with the popular ‘PM for Beginners’ presentation and for budding powder metallurgists they can join the Young Engineers programme, where they can learn more about the different facets of the powder metal sector.
Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition First Announcement is available for download at the Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition website (www.europm2020.com) and contains an overview of the forthcoming event. The Euro PM2020 Industry Exhibition will also take place in parallel to the technical sessions and will be a showcase for the entire powder metal industry in Europe in 2020. ‘Interest in exhibition space is positive, as there are a number of exhibition spaces already allocated, therefore a prompt response is required to ensure you do not miss out on your location at this year’s PM industry exhibition.’ Commented Andrew Almond, EPMA’s Exhibition Manager. The Euro PM2020 Exhibition floor plans and stand booking forms are available via the event website.
