Grinder is a powder metallurgist who has actively contributed to the advancement of PM technology in Europe, Asia and North America. He is a member of the International Liaison Committee of the International Journal of Powder Metallurgy and has written articles for the Journal’s Consultants’ Corner. A member of APMI for over 27 years, and possessing over 43 years of PM experience, Grinder has published 60 reports in international journals or conference proceedings. He is one of the leading experts on the subject of hot isostatic pressing and has made significant contributions in the sintering of high alloys, including tool steels, stainless steels, and cemented carbides.

Lawcock is one of the pioneers of the roll-densification process for gears, converting numerous gears from wrought to PM. A member of APMI for nearly 20 years, Lawcock has promoted the advancement of PM as a science by disseminating and exchanging information through his many publication efforts. He received the MPIF Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award as the outstanding technical paper at the 2005 annual conference, as well as the SAE Arch T. Colwell Award for significant contribution to literature. He received the MPIF Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy award in 2013. During his over 30 years in PM, he has focused on high-volume, high-performance automotive applications based on lean alloys, high-temperature sintering, and improvements to core and surface density.
