Technical Sessions

Powder metallurgy, the preferred net shaping method for manufacturing complex parts in steel, stainless steel, copper alloys, refractory metals, hard metals, heavy metals, ceramics and composites has been around for some time but is now getting a boost with increased energy and environment consciousness. The development of lifestyle & health devices, VVT, hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, fuel cells, catalytic converters, composite electrical contacts, advanced sensors, light weight components and thermoelectric devices have been made possible by the use of several technologies that comprise the science & practice of Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials. The conference addresses these and related developments by way of presentations made by experts in each field during the plenary sessions.

The concurrent Annual Technical Meet of PMAI provides a platform for researchers from industry & academia to present their work.
