  • The Powder Metallurgy Association of India, an association of Indian and overseas PM professionals from industry, research laboratories and academia is conducting the 2014 annual international conference in Chennai. With a population of over 5 million, Chennai has been an automotive part hub since the 60’s with large manufacturers of auto parts like the TVS, TI, Amalgamation, Rane groups, Ashok Leyland, the battle tank factory and Mitsubishi as well as hundreds of SMEs in Ambattur and Guindy established decades before the economic liberalization that brought in Hyundai, Ford, Daimler, BMW, Renault, Nissan, Caterpillar, Komatsu, Delphi, Borg Warner, Allison, Valeo, Visteon, Nemak, Elgin, Mando, and scores of SMEs in several industrial estates around the city. Venue : Hotel Le Royal Meridien, # 1 GST Road, Chennai 600 016. Conference Language : English Technical Sessions Experts from the industry, research institutions and academia will make oral and poster presentations of their original work and technology reviews. Powder metallurgy, the preferred net shaping method for manufacturing complex parts in steel, refractory metals, tungsten carbide and composites has been around for some time but is now getting a boost with increased energy and environment consciousness. The development of VVT, hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, fuel cells, catalytic converters, composite electrical contacts, advanced sensors, light weight components and thermoelectric devices have been made possible by the science of Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials. The conference addresses these and related developments by way of plenary presentations made by experts in each field. Special sessions in previous conferences covered the subjects of Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) and Additive Manufacturing. In this conference the special session will focus on PM in the DEVELOPMENT of FUNCTIONALLY GRADIENT components, parts that are made up of different materials, each performing a specific function. Topics • Modeling of PM parts & processes • Materials & alloy development • Powder production & characterisation • Compaction & other forming processes • Compaction equipment • Sintering & sintering equipment • Hard metals & diamond tools • Refractory metals • Ceramics & composites • Materials for aerospace and defence applications • • • • • • • • • • Testing & evaluation of PM parts Health, safety & environment Energy conservation Materials for alternate energy generation. Advances in equipment design Medical applications PIM (MIM & CIM) technology Laser sintering, cladding and coating Magnetic materials, SMC & hard magnets Additive manufacturing Call for papers Abstracts of papers for oral presentation as well as posters (1000 words, max. 2 figures) may be submitted electronically at before the deadline. All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference guide and distributed to all delegates.
