Conferences, Seminars and the Basic PM Short Course 

Metal Powder Industries Federation holds international conferences in the spring of each year, providing a forum for exchanging information on the latest scientific and technical developments in the field of powder metallurgy. MPIF conferences bring together scientists, engineers, and researchers from academia, industry, and government laboratories to share results, transfer technology, and discuss issues on related topics through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, and panel discussions.

21 Jul 2020 Webinar Series - A Look at Ferrous PM Alloying Using Metallography 7/21/2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Powder metallurgy (PM) parts are used successfully in a variety of applications, where the diversity in property requirements is satisfied through the use of a large selection of alloy compositions and many innovative manufacturing techniques.  Creating these alloy compositions in the powder volume is accomplished using several methods.  Each method takes advantage of the available particle surfaces and the internal grain structure for diffusion of specific alloying elements into the part volume.  Alloying elements are introduced to the larger, base ferrous particles in several ways and their behavior during sintering is followed in this presentation using several metallographic approaches.
