The paper was selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the PowderMet2021 conference in Orlando and critically evaluated for the prestigious award.
The paper is available for download on the MPIF website. It is also included in Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials—2021. The authors will be officially recognized during PowderMet2022 in Portland, Oregon, June 12–15, 2022.
The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award (renamed in 2009), was established in 1993 to recognize authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from those papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual technical conference organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International; to enhance the quality of technology transfer in the PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the annual technical conference; and, to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to powder metallurgy products, processes, and materials.
Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: (1) the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review; (2) has clear presentation in writing, organization, Graphics, format, and has professional integrity; (3) has clear industrial application; and (4) has long-term value.
The recipients of the 2021 Metal Additive Manufacturing Outstanding Technical Paper Award and Tungsten Best Paper Award will be featured in future FocusPM Newsletters.
