The 20th Residential PM Summer School for Young Engineers
About EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer Schools
The EPMA PM Summer Schools have been designed to offer participants from all parts of Europe an advanced teaching of PM’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial personnel in Europe. It is also a rare opportunity to stimulate direct technical discussions by young scientists and engineers who are interested in broadening their knowledge through interaction with senior figures in the PM industry.
Powder Metallurgy (PM) is the generic name for a series of related processes where powders are compacted into components of the desired shape and then the compacts are strengthened by sintering at high temperature in excess of 1100o C. PM can utilise a range of materials including steels, non-ferrous metals, friction and anti-friction materials, high porosity materials and filters, hard materials and cemented carbides, magnets and materials for electronic applications.
