The annual Basic Powder Metallurgy (PM) Short Course recently pressed out another batch of students. This year's course, held August 14–16, received excellent feedback from attendees, with over 93% stating that they would recommend the course to others.
During routine materials experimentation at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, a team of researchers observed a bubbling reaction when adding water to a nano-galvanic aluminum-based powder. The team further investigated and found that water splits apart when coming into contact with their unique aluminum nanomaterial. The reaction surprised the researchers, but they soon considered its potential implications for future power and energy applications.
Over the last several years, the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference (AMPM) has exceeded all expectations from high-quality technical presentations to conference attendance As a result, AMPM2018 will now be a day longer than previous AMPM conferences, running from June 17–20, 2018, and matching the length of the co-located POWDERMET2018: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials.
The latest research from POWDERMET2017: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, and the co-located Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, AMPM2017, has been released in two new electronic publications: Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials–2017 and AMPM2017 Conference Presentations.
An official call for papers and posters has been announced for POWDERMET2018: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, June 17–20, 2018. This leading North American powder metallurgy (PM) conference will take place at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Texas, and is seeking a wide variety of topics.
