The first Titanium Powder Metallurgy Technology and Application Summit Forum took place in Taizhou City, Jiangsu Province, China, on June 18, 2021. The successful conference, which was jointly held by China Powder Metallurgy Alliance (CPMA), Jiangsu Jinwu New Materials Co., Ltd. (JSJW), and Uniris Exhibition Shanghai Co., Ltd., welcomed nearly 300 attendees representing 153 organisations from across China.
Reporting for Metal AM magazine, Dr Chiou Yau Hung (Dr Q) stated that the conference focused on the topics of Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), metal powder, mixing, feedstock, debinding, sintering and application in high-efficiency titanium alloy, as well as Additive Manufacturing and traditional processing.
After the conference presentations and round-table Q&A sessions, the common consensus was that the accelerated development of automobile manufacturing, consumer electronics (3C products), 5G communication, aerospace, biomedical and other industries, was resulting in demand for advanced materials and innovative forming technologies such as Powder Metallurgy, MIM, and AM is expanding.
Thanks to the sponsorship of JSJW, guests were able to participate in all activities free of charge. Professor Guo Zhimeng of the University of Science and Technology Beijing, and JSJW founder, stated, “Jinwu assistance is only a small force in promoting the application of titanium and titanium alloy products. We hope that more end customers can accept and use more titanium and titanium alloy designs, and lead the whole industry further.”
Conference attendees were also given the opportunity to visit the production plant of JSJW, to learn about the manufacturing process of spherical titanium powder and the equipment specially designed to verify the performance of the powder.
JSJW was also reported to have joined the powder technology R&D share platform (RDSP) established by the CPMA. This project is aimed at opening the research resources of equipment and raw material suppliers to their customers, allowing the exchange of information through the platform to solve problems in product manufacturing.
