A new resource has been launched by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) for the benefit of the entire powder metallurgy (PM) industry—the MPIF Digital Library. This new benefit contains thousands of technical manuscripts from MPIF technical conferences dating back to 1946 in a completely searchable database.
For the first time in over a decade, the Robotics & Automation in Powder Metallurgy Seminar will return to highlight ways to help your plant eliminate waste, improve quality and productivity, and streamline labor usage. Join over a dozen speakers December 11–12, 2018, at the Penn Stater Conference Center, State College, Pennsylvania. The advance rate registration deadline is November 2.
This year's Powder Metallurgy Sintering Seminar, held September 25–26 in State College, Pennsylvania, was another rousing success. The seminar attracted over 65 attendees with backgrounds and experience levels ranging from entry level to experienced, and over half of the attendees reported being involved in engineering. Other areas such as quality assurance, production, sales, and management were also represented. One of the best statistics to come out of the course...
A special Task Force of MPIF Technical Board members met and selected, “Using Light and Electron Microscopy, Computed Tomography, and Light Scattering to Evaluate Additive Manufacturing Powders and Parts” by Thomas F. Murphy, FAPMI, Christopher T. Schade and Alexander D. Zwiren, Hoeganaes Corporation as the recipient of the AMPM2018 Best Paper Award from among the submitted manuscripts of the conference Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy 2018 (AMPM2018) held in San Antonio this past June.
The 2018 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award has been selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the POWDERMET2018 conference in San Antonio.
