2024 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards Announced

The winners in the 2024 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), demonstrate outstanding examples of PM’s diversity and ability to meet critical requirements. From electric vehicles to medical implants, once again, parts fabricators have demonstrated PM’s versatility and unique ability to challenge competing technologies. These award-winning components use PM’s flexibility to push forward new concepts and process controls to demonstrate the inexhaustible range of PM’s capabilities.

Ten Grand Prizes and seventeen Awards of Distinction were given in this year's competition, segmented into 3 categories: Conventional Press and Sinter PM; Metal Injection Molding (MIM); and Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM).

MPIF Announces Powder Metallurgy Industry Landmark Award

The Powder Metallurgy Industry Landmark Award recognizes PM products, production processes, equipment systems, or materials that represent a well-established application that has made a significant impact in PM usage, or the design represents a significant PM innovation.

State of the PM Industry in North America—2024

Michael Stucky, President, Metal Powder Industries Federation

Powder Metallurgy (PM) comprises four major categories: press and sinter (P&S); metal injection molding (MIM); metal additive manufacturing (AM); and hot or cold isostatic pressing (HIP/CIP). Many areas of PM can be considered a circular economy as they reduce material use; redesign materials, products, and services to be less resource intensive; and recapture “waste” as a resource to manufacture new materials and products. An advanced manufacturing process that can produce robust net-shape components, PM’s high material utilization promotes efficient use of raw materials, reduces energy consumption, and improves labor efficiency.

APMI International Names 2024 Fellow

APMI International’s most prestigious award recognizes APMI members for their significant contributions to the goals,  purpose, and mission of the organization as well as for a high level of expertise in the technology, practice, or business of the industry. The 2024 Fellow Award recipient will receive elevation to Fellow status at PowderMet2024 / AMPM2024, June 16-19 in Pittsburgh. The 2024 recipient is Deepak Madan.

Kempton H. Roll PM Lifetime Achievement Award: Thomas F. Murphy, FAPMI

Thomas F. Murphy, FAPMI, Senior Scientist, Research and Development, Hoeganaes Corporation, has been selected to receive the Kempton H. Roll Powder Metallurgy (PM) Lifetime Achievement Award by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). The award will be presented during the combined PowderMet2024 (International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials) and AMPM2024 (Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy) conferences, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, during the Opening General Session on Monday, June 17.
