APMA 2019

5TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
POWDER METALLURGY IN ASIA + EXHIBITIONS
Hosted by Powder Metallurgy Association of India

The process of pressing metal powder to the required shape, sintering the compacts into parts and finishing of these parts are the main elements of powder metallurgy press & sinter technology. Powder metallurgy is an environment-friendly process where 95-100% of the raw material can be found in the finished part. The overall reduction in cost due to fewer processing steps makes it an attractive alternative to casting/ forging & machining. Continuous technological advances in increasing the density, tribological & mechanical properties are increasing the areas where press & sinter parts can be used.
