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

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 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.

The new EPMA Newsletter, Issue #114, is now ready for download. EPMA Members can download a copy via the Newsletters page. 

The 5-day programme was hosted and coordinated by Dr Christian Gierl-Mayer of TU Wien and also Dr Marco Actis-Grande of the Politecnico di Torino.

In the middle of May the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) held its Quality for Powder Metallurgy (PM) Seminar in Seville. The 2-day technical seminar focused on a number of aspects relating to quality techniques and technology for PM structural parts.

The Euro PM2018 Congress and Exhibition will take place in Bilbao, Spain from 14 -18 October 2018 and will be an all topic event, encompassing over 300 technical papers on the following areas of the PM industry:

  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Hard Materials and Diamond Tools
  • Hot Isostatic Pressing
  • New Materials and Applications
  • Powder Injection Moulding
  • Press & Sinter

If you are involved in one or more of these areas, then attending this year's enlarged Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition will make Bilbao the place to be in 2018!

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will soon launch a club project on Micro-mechanical testing: a quantitative method for measuring local mechanical properties in hardmetals – Stage 2 in partnership with CEIT, San Sebastian, NPL, London and UPC, Barcelona.

During EPMA’s Functional Materials Seminar, hosted by Forschungszentrum Jülich in April, Peter Kjeldsteen (Sintex a/s) announced his proposal for the first Functional Materials Club Project. The project proposes that a concept car is built (a hybrid car with combustion engine, electric motor and battery) which contains as many as possible parts made from PM manufacturing techniques. The purpose of this project is not to build the perfect hybrid car, but to demonstrate that there is a sufficient supply chain to produce all the relevant parts by powder metallurgical manufacturing methods.

Video content of the EPMA's 31st General Assembly presentations are now ready to be viewed via the following links:

In the run up to the launch of the forthcoming Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition Technical Programme brochure, EPMA have released a range of technical programme interviews, recorded at the Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition Technical Programme Committee Meeting, featuring members of the Technical Programme Committee who are providing insights into this year's Euro PM event content and what delegates and attendees can expect from the city of Bilbao as a Euro PM location.
