The Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering (IWM) at RWTH Aachen University and the Institute for Applied Powder Metallurgy and Ceramics at RWTH Aachen e.V.. (IAPK) invite you to next year's colloquium of the institute network under the title "Development of Tool Materials". On March 21st, 2024 in TEMA Pyramid ten lectures in German language will be held.
The following lectures are already confirmed:
During the colloquium, numerous interesting lectures are held on current research topics from science and industry leading to further discussions.
The exchange among colleagues on current issues is always a welcome opportunity to get up to date.
For further information and registration please refer to the website.
From powder to components: at the IAPK, we focus on the entire process chain.
Our range of research, development and services encompasses all fields relating to powder metallurgical and ceramic material development and component manufacturing. This includes design and simulation, powder processing and shaping, consolidation via sintering processes, thermal processing and component testing.
Our team places special emphasis on the complex joining techniques of ceramic structural components with metallic and other ceramic components. With the help of computer aided numerical simulations, we also generate lifetime predictions relating to specific operating conditions, such as cyclic loading and elevated temperature loading.
»Whether for the purpose of performing research or providing services, we have permanent access to the state-of-the-art technical equipment of our institute alliance.«
The IAPK is a non-profit organisation that receives support from an Association of Sponsors known as the Förderverein. This association is composed of individuals and companies active in the sector, and its goal is to facilitate and promote the scientific work carried out at the institute. It also functions as a strong and competent network of members, all of whom benefit directly from rapid access to our research findings and active involvement in shaping our research work.
