Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, has announced the dates for its 20th Plansee Seminar, the International Conference on Refractory Metals and Hard Materials, which will take place at its Reutte headquarters, June 7–11, 2021.

Originally established by Professor Paul Schwarzkopf in 1952 as a four-yearly event, the seminar is a global forum for the technical and scientific Powder Metallurgy community to exchange ideas and keep up to date with the latest innovations and market trends in the fields of refractory metals and hard materials. 

Plansee Group states that the aim of the conference is to provide insights into all aspects of these materials – from materials science to the latest achievements in extractive metallurgy, manufacturing technology, industrial applications and recycling.

Presentations at the 20th Plansee Seminar are expected to cover all market segments where refractory metals and hard materials are playing an important role, or where they may provide promising alternatives to present material solutions. The following fields of application, in particular, will be addressed:

Refractory metals and composites for application in:

  • Transportation
  • Electronics
  • Thermal management
  • Lighting technology
  • Medical technology
  • Energy generation and distribution
  • Power engineering
  • Chemical engineering
  • Coating technology
  • Joining technology
  • Metal, glass, plastic, and ceramics production
  • High-temperature furnaces and devices
  • New areas

PM hard materials for application in:

  • Wear parts
  • Machining of metals, composites, graphitic materials, wood and stone
  • Precision tooling
  • Chipless forming
  • Mining and constructions
  • Joining technology
  • New areas

A call for papers for the 20th Plansee Seminar is expected to be issued in April 2020. 

Attendance is by invitation only. Those who would like to request an invite can do by contacting Heinrich Kestler: [email protected]
