Dr David Whittaker to receive 2018 Ivor Jenkins Medal

Dr David Whittaker has been named as recipient of the 2018 Ivor Jenkins Medal

 

The UK’s Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) has named Dr David Whittaker, CEng, FIMMM, as recipient of its 2018 Ivor Jenkins Medal. The prestigious award is presented to individuals in recognition of a significant contribution that has enhanced the scientific, industrial or technological understanding of materials processing or component production using Powder Metallurgy and particulate materials.

Dr Whittaker has over 34 years’ experience in Powder Metallurgy technology, with a career split between industrial research and development and independent technical consultancy. In both roles, he has established international recognition for his high level of expertise.

In the field of industrial research and development, Dr Whittaker has led world-leading PM product and process development programmes at the level of Technical Director for GKN Powder Metallurgy Division and at T&N/Federal-Mogul. These programmes have included the design and development of press/sinter PM automotive connecting rods (a world first), process development for surface-densified PM transmission gears, variable valve timing system development and the development of assembled camshafts with powder metal lobes.

As a consultant, he has pursued a wide range of assignments for a broad customer base, including those in industry, trade associations, government and European Union organisations and academia.

Dr Whittaker has written for leading technical journals and publications around the world, and since 2007 has served as Consulting Editor to Powder Injection Moulding International, Powder Metallurgy Review and Metal Additive Manufacturing magazines.

He has been active with IOM3 as a member of the Powder Metallurgy Committee (1984 – 1990) and of the Particulate Engineering Committee (since 2010).
