The North American powder metallurgy (PM) industry descended on the famous Las Vegas Strip last week for POWDERMET2017, co-located with AMPM2017. This year's delegates numbered over 1,000 from 30 countries. Delegates attended technical presentations and special interest programs on the latest R&D in PM, particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing (AM). The annual poster display was extremely robust, containing almost 50 posters, thanks in part to the heavy number of students in attendance as a result of a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Not to be outdone, the sold-out trade exhibition featured more than 100 companies showcasing top products, goods, and services.
With POWDERMET2017 and AMPM2017 just around the corner, the powder metallurgy (PM) industry is packing bags and hopping flights to the bright city lights of the famous Las Vegas Strip. What is on the agenda for attendees this year?
The Metal Powder Industries Federation's (MPIF) Awards Committee has announced the recipients of the 2017 MPIF Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy (PM) Award that recognizes individuals who have actively served the North American PM industry for at least 25 years and, in the minds of their peers, deserve special recognition.
The luxurious Bellagio hotel on the Las Vegas strip, headquarters hotel for POWDERMET2017 & AMPM2017, has opened its doors to the powder metallurgy (PM) industry by providing a newly reduced room rate of $159/night + $25 resort fee and taxes. POWDERMET2017, the largest North American powder metallurgy (PM) and particulate materials conference, features the most robust technical program yet with over 200 worldwide PM industry experts presenting on the latest in PM, particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing. Meanwhile, the co-located Additive Manufacturing with Powder
