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.
EPMA PM Summer School 2018
This year's summer school will be held at TU Wien, Vienna, Austria and will be coordinated jointly by Dr Marco Actis Grande from the Politecnico di Torino and Dr Christian Gierl-Mayer from TU Wien. The 5-day programme runs from 2 - 6 July and will present an in depth overview of PM. For more details please see the programme page.
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.
