The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) organised its Euro PM2020 Virtual Congress from October 5–7, 2020. The Virtual Congress, the first online edition of the EPMA’s annual Powder Metallurgy Congress, included over 160 oral presentations, with interactive Q&A discussions with the authors following each technical session.

The technical programme represented all areas of Powder Metallurgy, including Additive Manufacturing, functional materials, hard materials and diamond tools, Hot Isostatic Pressing, Metal Injection Moulding, new materials, processes and applications and conventional Press & Sinter PM.

“Moving to a digital platform was a big challenge, but I am delighted with the event we were able to deliver. We had such a strong technical programme this year that it would have been truly unfair to the speakers not to have the opportunity to present their work,” stated Lionel Aboussouan, EPMA Executive Director.

Mr Ralf Carlström, EPMA’s President, opened the Plenary Presentations with an ‘Overview of the status and trends in the European PM industry’. This was followed by Mr Jean-Marie Reveille of automotive benchmarking company A2MAC1 presenting ‘Current and new opportunities for PM components in New Mobility’.

“Our members are always enthusiastic about the latest research in PM, and I think we found a great method of delivering it to them,” added Aboussouan.
