The MPIF has released the full conference programmes for POWDERMET2019: the North American Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, and AMPM2019: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, set to run concurrently at the Sheraton Grand in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, from June 23–26, 2019.
POWDERMET2019 will feature more than two-hundred technical presentations from global industry experts presenting on PM, particulate materials, and metal Additive Manufacturing. In addition, 100+ exhibitors will showcase their technologies and services in the co-located POWDERMET exhibition, and a number of industry networking events such as the ‘PM Evening Alehouse’ will offer visitors and exhibitors the chance to make contacts within a diverse range of PM fields.
“POWDERMET conferences provide attendees with the opportunity to learn best practices, new solutions, and the latest R&D,” stated Blaine Stebick, MPIF Technical Board Chairman. “Powder Metallurgy continues to be an innovative technology that inspires the next generation of engineers, especially with the rising influence and interest in metal Additive Manufacturing.”
AMPM2019’s conference programme will focus on the latest innovations while attempting to filter commercial content. Attendees to AMPM will also have full access to all POWDERMET events including the conference programme, exhibition and networking sessions.
Metal Additive Manufacturing tutorial
A new Metal Additive Manufacturing Tutorial will also make its debut during POWDERMET and AMPM2019. Presented by Todd A Palmer, The Pennsylvania State University, and Joseph T Strauss, FAPMI, HJE Company, Inc., this half-day tutorial will provide a basis for determining process options, uses, properties, applications and opportunities for cost-effective metal AM.
“Metal Additive Manufacturing has pulled Powder Metallurgy back into the spotlight,” commented Stebick. “The AMPM conference provides an essential opportunity for the transfer of technology and exposes engineers to further influence of Powder Metallurgy for design and manufacturing solutions.”
The full technical programmes and further details on POWDERMET and AMPM are available via the conference websites. Registration is available at early-bird discounted rates until May 10, 2019.
