The technical programme for the World PM2016 Congress & Exhibition has just been published by the European Powder Metallurgy Association. The event, which takes place in Hamburg, Germany, from October 9-13, 2016, includes more than 450 keynote, oral, poster and special interest presentations.
More than 65 technical papers relate directly to metal Additive Manufacturing technology, with many more addressing the latest advances in metal powder production, making the technical programme one of the world’s largest to-date on the subject of powder-based metal AM.
AM related papers have been accepted from authors based throughout Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific, reflecting the truly global nature of the event. Presenting companies include Airbus Group, Saab Aeronautics, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, European Space Agency, European Commission, ONERA, Altair Engineering, GKN Sinter Metals Engineering GmbH Germany, Schneider Electric France and Materialise, to name just a few.
A Special Interest Seminar will additionally provide an update on the global progress of metal Additive Manufacturing, with presentations covering global research activities, industrial and aerospace developments, advances in production technologies and other AM related topics that will give broad coverage of activities in the AM metal arena.
The full technical programme consists of some 70 technical sessions, seven keynote paper award winners and five special interest seminars.
Dr Michael Krehl, World PM2016 Congress Chairman, stated, “Due to the high volume and quality of the abstracts submitted to the event, the Steering Committee took the unanimous decision to increase the number of technical sessions during the congress, which will make for an extensive programme covering all areas of PM.”
