Advanced Processes and Materials
Following on 2012's successful Short Course, the EPMA held a second Sintering Short Course in Vienna, 24 – 26 March 2013, focusing on Advanced Processes and Materials. Sixty-one engineers and scientists from throughout Europe joined with sixteen speakers drawn from both industry and academia to examine the practical capabilities and applications of sintering technology as applied to the powder metallurgy process. Lectures included: Sintering Atmospheres, High Temperature Sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing, Spark Plasma Sintering, Modelling of Sintering and Sintering of PM High Speed Steels amongst others. Participants also had the opportunity to discuss and explore problems and case studies with the finest experts in the field.
