The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced its 20th Powder Metallurgy Summer School, set to take place in Ciudad Real, Spain, has been delayed for the second year due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19. The location for the 2022 Summer School will remain the same, but the date is yet to be confirmed.
The five-day residential course is open to young scientists, designers and engineers looking to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of the Powder Metallurgy process and applications. Topics covered include the manufacture of metal powders, powder compaction, MIM, modelling, sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing and Additive Manufacturing. Participants also have the chance to discuss and solve problems, as well as gain hands-on experience of various PM processes.
The EPMA adds that students will have the opportunity to learn more about Powder Metallurgy, free of charge, during its 2021 Young Engineers Day which will take place virtually on September 9, 2021.
