The powder metallurgy (PM) and metal additive manufacturing (AM) industries are gearing up for the biggest North American industry conferences of the year in just under a month. POWDERMET2019, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, and the co-located AMPM2019, the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy Conference, will be in the heart of Phoenix June 23–26, 2019, at the Sheraton Grand. Saddle up and join the PM and AM industries for the most vibrant conference yet!
Student attendance at POWDERMET2019, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, and AMPM2019, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, could be at an all-time high this year thanks to several grant programs. In total, 75 grants have been awarded to students from colleges and universities from across the country. Students will have a technical poster on display at the conference and present a 10-minute synopsis during a Grant TNT: Talk ‘N Technology session.
From attendees to exhibitors and from speakers to students, networking is one of the most important functions at a conference. Form or strengthen relationships, get face-to-face time with customers, and ask follow-up questions to researchers in your field. This June, POWDERMET2019: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials and AMPM2019: the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference are ready to set you and your company up for success.
APMI International's most prestigious award recognizes APMI members for their significant contributions to the goals, purpose, and mission of the organization as well as for a high level of expertise in the technology, practice, or business of the industry. The 2019 Fellow Award recipients will receive elevation to Fellow status at POWDERMET2019: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials during the Industry Luncheon on Tuesday, June 25. The 2019 recipients are Joseph Tunick Strauss and John L. Johnson.
The 2018 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award has been selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the POWDERMET2018 conference in San Antonio.
