Join the seminar "Progress and Challenges in Press&Sinter" in Barcelona on 28-29 March 2023! Press&Sinter absorbs, for the ferrous part production, more than 60% of the powders used in the European market. Therefore, is still by far the most used powder metallurgy technology used to produce and sell parts, that means the most successful powder metallurgy technology, marketwise: so that the term “powder metallurgy” itself is often used as a synonym of Press&Sinter. Although it might seem a very mature sector, where almost everything has been already studied and optimised, this narrative is not correct. Changes in the requirements [...]

Join the seminar on Materials and Development in Metal Injection Moulding in Sandviken on 24-25 May 2023! Metal Injection Moulding is nowadays an established technology: in Europe, its industrial application dates back to the early 1990’s and just entered it fourth decade. From the early days, much has changed, for the better. Companies can now quite safely offer superior designs, good alloy control, reasonable tolerances despite the challenge of large sintering shrinkages, and sound performance, at competitive prices. The range of achievable part weight and thickness is constantly improving, and process capability does the same. Thus, it is a [...]
EPMA Launches a New Publication : Introduction to Hard Materials. Hard metals, or cemented carbides today form the backbone of the tool manufacturing industry with diverse applications. They show a wide range for the combination of high hardness and toughness ,making them suitable for many wear applications such as machining of metallic and non-metallic materials, chipless forming (wire drawing, can tooling, forging, stamping, mill rolls, powder compacting punches and dies, high pressure dies and anvils), mining (oil well drill bits, rock drill bits), industrial nozzles (sand blasting, water jet cutting, painting, glue dispensers), industrial wear parts (dental and medical tools), paper, plastic and textile knives, guide rolls, seal rings, [...]
New year, new website! After many years, EPMA is starting to upgrade its websites to offer improved versions to the members and the rest of the community. The seminars website is the first step. New graphics, that has been a big effort of our graphics specialists, but also new features. We will still give you all the information you are used to, that is all the events organised, the details for joining, and the registration pages, plus an useful tool to bring the events into your personal calendar. In addition to them, as you can see, there is this new feature that is a News blog, [...]
