The Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference is seeking papers covering the numerous developments that have taken place since it was last held in conjunction with WorldPM2014, World Congress on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials. Montréal, Canada, is gearing up to host the Tungsten2020 conference, alongside two additional co-located powder metallurgy and additive manufacturing conferences, at the Montréal Convention Center on June 27–July 1, 2020. The abstract submission deadline is November 15, 2019.
A revised edition of “A Collection of Powder Characterization Standards for Metal Additive Manufacturing” was recently released. The publication contains nine existing MPIF Standard Test Methods that can be applicable for the characterization of powders used in metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes, with an explanation of each standard. These standards, intended to present and clarify PM technology as an aid in conducting business, relate to those activities that concern designers, manufacturers, and users of metal AM parts.
