Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials Conference Issues Call for Papers

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.

Outstanding Technical Paper Authors Recognized

The 2016 Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award was given to Neal P. Kraus, graduate student (now employed by Hoeganaes Corporation); Richard L. Hexemer, Jr., principal engineer, GKN Sinter Metals; Ian W. Donaldson, FAPMI, director of advanced engineering applications, GKN Sinter Metals, LLC; and D. Paul Bishop, professor, Dalhousie University; for their paper "Consolidation of Aerospace-Grade Aluminum 7055 Powder Via Sinter-Forge Processing." The paper was selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the POWDERMET2016 conference in Boston and critically evaluated for the prestigious award. The authors were officially recognized during the Industry Luncheon held during POWDERMET2017 in Las Vegas.

Powder Metallurgy Industry Roadmap Updated

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), with the aid of powder metallurgy (PM) industry leaders, has released an updated version of the PM Industry Roadmap. Due to significant technological advancements over the past five years, the 2017 PM Industry Roadmap has been updated to provide a detailed research agenda for the industry. This document addresses the vision for the PM industry, and includes a view of future customer and market expectations, as well as the goals designed to meet those expectations.

Award-Winning Powder Metal Parts

The winners in the 2017 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), demonstrate outstanding examples of PM's diversity. These component fabricators use PM's flexibility to push forward new concepts and process controls and demonstrate the inexhaustible well of capabilities PM can marshal in the service of component design. Designers continue to choose PM for critical applications such as auto engines and transmissions, medical devices, consumer products, military applications, and more.

Eight Grand Prizes and ten Awards of Distinction have been given in this year's competition.
