The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced upcoming course dates for PM Life in 2019-20. PM Life is a training programme organised by a variety of partners in the European PM industry, which aims to provide lifelong learning in Powder Metallurgy.

PM Life delivers comprehensive training to participants, who have the choice of attending the full five-week course or picking specific modules which relate to their field of interest.

Each one-week course module will be hosted in a different venue across five European countries, offering participants a wide range of experience and contacts within the European Powder Metallurgy industry. An optional internship is also offered by PM Life, which can be undertaken in either a factory or university, so that participants can practice what they have learnt during the course in a working environment.

The PM life training programme is made up of the following modules:

 

Powder and Hardmetals

June 3-7 2019 – Gothenburg, Sweden

The Powder and Hardmetals module will provide a comprehensive overview of the fabrication and use of metal powder and hard metals. The module will cover both fundamental aspects of the technology and industrial practices, in sessions led by experts from academia, research and industry. The module will include lectures on metal powder fabrication and properties for press & sinter, Additive Manufacturing and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP).

 

Press and Sinter

June 17-21 2019 – Grenoble, France

The Press and Sinter module will go into both fundamental and practical facets of the conventional powder processing route comprising pressing and sintering operations. Sessions will be held on topics including modelling, the numerical design of parts and tools for pressing, pressing machines, material selection, types of sintering process, the mechanical properties of sintered steels and more. The module will also include laboratory work, team projects and a visit to a plant.
