Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition is an all topic powder metallurgy. Abstracts can be submitted on the following topics:

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, rapid prototyping or freeform fabrication, is the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies such as machining. The term 3D printing can be defined as the fabrication of objects through the deposition of a material using a print head, nozzle, or another printer technology. The use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) with metal powders is a new and growing industry sector with many of its leading companies based in Europe.

Functional Materials

Functional materials can be defined in different ways. Mostly, they make use of a distinct physical property they bring into a component, such as magnetism, caloric effects, electronic conductivity, and others. They may also enable manufacturing processes in the form of temporary agents, due to chemical, rheological or other physical behaviors. Whatever the functionality they provide, they are key components with regard to targeted applications. With growing understanding of powder-based processes, the desire to implement functionality into components also increases, making functional materials an important part in current and future applications and developments.

Hardmetals, Hard Materials, Cermets and Diamond Tooling

Europe is a key player in the global hard materials field, the size of which is comparable to the structural parts sector. The range of hard materials available to design and manufacturing engineers has broadened considerably over recent years, and includes WC based hardmetals; Ti(C,N) based cermets; engineering ceramics; superhard CBN and PCD; and monocrystalline diamond impregnated tools.

Hot Isostatic Pressing

HIP has established itself in the past decade as an essential manufacturing process for the production of complex and highly specified components made from a wide range of metals and/or ceramics. As a niche, but developing sector with great potential, HIP introduces PM technology into size ranges and capabilities not traditionally associated with the technology. These HIP components are currently being used in a number of industry sectors that have highly demanding environments for example: aerospace, offshore, energy and medical.

Powder Injection Moulding

PIM is now an established manufacturing process for small precision components which would be costly to produce by alternative methods. It is capable of producing, in both large and small volumes, complex shapes from a wide range of materials, including non ferrous metals/high performance steels, Al and Ti, hardmetals/cemented carbides and magnetic materials and intermetallics. The competitiveness of PIM is shown by its average 10% annual growth rate, maintained and confirmed even over the 2008-2009 crisis period, and as a result components made by the PIM process are found in a wide range of applications.

Press & Sinter

The Press & Sinter sector of PM comprises the activities of the ferrous structural parts industry, including producers of iron base powders and other raw materials necessary for the ferrous structural parts industry, process equipment, tooling and component manufacturers. Press & Sinter components are used in a variety of markets, with the automotive industry being predominant, using approximately 70-80% of the ferrous products produced annually.
