The World PM2022 Congress & Exhibition

The World PM2022 Congress & Exhibition, organised and sponsored by the
European Powder Metallurgy Association , took place
in Lyon, France, 9 - 13 October 2022.

This world event attracts industry leaders, decision-makers, respected
academics and PM related companies and personnel from across the supply

The programme of plenary, keynote, oral and poster presentations were
focused on all aspects of PM:

* Powder Production
* Consolidation technologies (Compaction and Sintering, MIM, HIP,
FAST, AM beam based technologies, AM sinter based technologies, .)
* Materials (Ferrous & Non ferrous materials, Light materials, Hight
temperature materials, Functional materials, Hard metals, cermets and
diamond tools, .)
* Applications (Biomedical, Aerospace, Automotive, Energy, .)
* Tools for improving PM (Test and evaluation, Secondary operations,
Design and modelling, Life Cycle Analysis, Digitization, .)

At the Congress we presented:

- our X-ray high-resolution Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) solutions for
sintered and additive manufactured parts quality analysis available in our
laboratory, together with some X-ray digital radiography images of scanned

- a high-resolution X-ray Digital Radiography (DR) system and a Laser-based
3D profiler accurate dimension measurement, both installed in one machine,
for sintered parts in-line NDT quality control.

- a new real-time X-ray imaging quality control system for parts
manufactured by Laser Melting Deposition (LMD) and adaptable for any
additive manufacturing technique, able to acquire continuously DR data
during the deposition process and to check, in real-time, the deposition
geometrical parameters and internal defects.
