Portland Welcomes the PM Industry


The true excitement of PowderMet2022 and AMPM2022 showed on the smiling faces of the delegates, many of whom haven’t seen their industry colleagues in 3 years. Delegates were greeted by The Royal Rosarians, the Official Greeters and Ambassadors of Goodwill for the City of Portland, and The Beat Goes On, an eclectic marching band, at the Opening Reception. From the exhibitors, featuring the latest PM, MIM, and metal AM equipment, powders, products, and services, to the speakers, sharing their most recent research and development activities, there was something for everyone in Portland. Although international delegate registrations were down, primarily due to lingering COVID-19 concerns and inflated airfares, 20 countries were represented by dedicated PM professionals.
