PM Magnetic Materials & Testing Seminar

The powder metallurgy industry is transforming, with PM magnetic materials expected to take a key role in the electric vehicle market. There is something fascinating about engines and motors because they power so much of our lives. In the world of electric motors, a new axial flux motor has been making news, and for good reason. It has some interesting benefits that can play a big role in future powertrains. And it is a great opportunity for PM!

This seminar will help expand your knowledge of soft and hard magnets, preparing you for the demands of new materials, such as soft-magnetic alloys and soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials. You will also have hands-on experiences with AC and DC testing of magnetic materials in the laboratory at Magnet-Physics Inc. under the direction of Reinhold Strnat.

University of North Texas R&D to Boost Manufacturing Military Machinery

Herman Shen, chair for UNT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering

New research and development being conducted at the University of North Texas (UNT), Denton, Texas, could have a major impact on future military operations. The research will analyze the Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) additive manufacturing process. The manufacturing will be done with equipment in UNT’s Center for Agile and Adaptive Additive Manufacturing. The research could allow military vessels to produce their own replacement parts that are more reliable and durable.

PacifiCan Funds to Support the Centre for Applied Research and Innovation

Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (PacifiCan), Burnaby, British Columbia,  announced over $1.9 million funding for the British Columbia Institute for Technology’s (BCIT) Centre for Applied Research and Innovation. The funds will establish AAMTECH, a 3D printing advanced additive manufacturing prototyping hub. The hub will reduce the cost to acquire and operate equipment that has been a barrier for businesses that are developing and commercializing new concepts.

MPIF Technical Board Meets to Review Las Vegas Papers

The MPIF Tech Board met recently to review and select the Outstanding Technical Paper Awards from PowderMet2023 and AMPM2023 conferences that were held in Las Vegas. The final review is part of a thorough vetting process that includes review by the session chair, assigned reviewers, and Tech Board members.

Las Vegas Welcomes the PM Industry Continues

The powder metallurgy (PM) industry was the brightest light on the famous Las Vegas Strip during PowderMet2023 and AMPM2023 at Caesars Palace. During the Opening General Session APMI International and the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) honored several distinguished members of the PM community.
