‘The Powdermet conference provides a perfect opportunity for everyone involved in the PM industry – from the visionaries and the theorists to the current and the practical,’ said Ken Schatz, sales manager, Metco Industries. ‘For me, the main benefit is in the showcasing of available current products and the ability to learn about the latest technology in current production applications. It also provides a good forum to network with vendors, suppliers, other part producers, and end users.’

Submissions for the conference, organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), and its affiliate APMI International, will be accepted until 3 November 2017. Visit powdermet2018.org for details.
