European PM organization the EPMA reports that it will be running four extra events in 2017, including seminars on hot isostatic pressing, PM structural parts and metal injection molding and a new workshop entitled ‘PM for Non-PM Specialists’. These new events are in addition to the annual series, which comprise the EPMA PM Summer School and Euro PM Congress & Exhibition. For the second year running there will also be a seminar on additive manufacturing.

The first seminar of the year, entitled ‘Design for PM’, will take place in Bologna, Italy from 27–28 April. Registration is now open here.

'Extending the range of EPMA events to represent all PM industry facets not only helps to promote the PM process, but helps to attract end users and new users to PM technology and understand the benefits and advantages PM components can produce,’ said Andrew Almond, EPMA's marketing manager. ‘It is only through the cooperation and assistance from the EPMA's various Sectoral Group Members that EPMA is able to extend the depth and range of events being organised and operated this year.'

The full range of EPMA's Powder Metallurgy Seminars can be found here, with more information being made available in due course via a dedicated micro-site.
