The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will hold its Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) seminar in Oslo, Norway, on February 25–26, 2020. The focus of the 2020 seminar will be on ‘The use of HIP to improve safety and innovation offshore’ in the oil and gas industry. 

HIP has been used for many years in the oil and gas industry to produce near net-shape components from metal powders and to close porosity in cast products. More recently, Additive Manufacturing has also entered this space; HIP can be used with AM to ensure material performance for the most critical applications.

The 2020 HIP seminar will be hosted at Energy Valley (Research Center) and feature presentations from a number of industry figures, as well as a site visit to DNV-GL and the opportunity to network and discuss the future of the HIP market. It is expected to be of interest both to end-users and designers, as well as to technical and managerial personnel in the HIP industry.

Registration for the seminar will open on October 1, 2019, and close on February 5, 2020.

Call for speakers

The EPMA has issued a call for speakers for the seminar and is seeking presentations around thirty minutes long (plus five minutes Q&A). Interested speakers should submit an abstract of 200-250 words for review by the seminar’s steering committee. 

The application deadline for speakers is September 20, 2019.
