Euro PM 2013 Congress and Exhibition

The European Powder Metallurgy Association – EPMA was formed in Brussels in 1989, and has three key missions: promoting powder metallurgy (PM) technology, representing the European PM industry as well as developing the PM future.

The EPMA serve all types of member organisations, from component, metal powder, and equipment producers to end-users, research centres, universities, and individuals who have an interest in PM. The first Euro PM Congress and Exhibition took place in Lausanne/CH in 1991. The 2013 Euro PM is the 22nd annual event to take place 15–18 September, in Svenska Mässan, The Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre, Gothenburg/SE. A full and busy schedule awaits delegates attending this year’s Euro PM 2013 Congress in Gothenburg. The opening Plenary Session will include an „Overview of the Status and Trends in the European PM Industry“ by new EPMA President Philippe Gundermann, and a presentation on „Materials Development to Meet the Future Challenges of the Automotive Industry“ by Dr Jan-Eric Sundgren, Executive Vice President Public and Environmental Affairs at Volvo AB/SE. In addition over 200 papers feature in the technical programme which will be running in parallel over four sessions and the launch of the EPMA Keynote Paper Award, sponsored by the Journal of Powder Metallurgy. Keynote papers will cover the areas of PM Structural Parts, Hard Materials, New Materials and Applications, and Hot Isostatic Pressing. The programme will also include in-depth Special Interest Seminars on:
• New and Innovative Applications of PM Hot Isostatic Pressing
• Novel Coating Technologies for Machining and Wear Applications
• Quality and Productivity in Metal Injection Moulding
• New Alloying Methods for PM Low Alloyed Steel and Lean Steels
• State of the Art and Emerging Markets for Additive Manufacturing.
On the last afternoon of the congress, registered participants will have the opportunity to take advantage of one of the factory tours available to them. This year’s factory tours programme consists of: a tour of additive manufacturing equipment at the Arcam AB facility; a tour around Chalmers University of Technology powder metallurgy research department and laboratory facilities; a tour of metal powder supplier Höganäs AB facilities in Halmstad and Höganäs as well as a tour around the Volvo Car assembly plant to see how a car is built.
As part of the overall Euro PM 2013 Congress and Exhibition, the exhibition is shaping up to be one of the main PM events of the year, as a high number of the PM supply chain companies have already taken a space at the annual show, making it the place in Europe to discuss PM related business in one place.
