The International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory and Hardmaterials will occur this year for the first time since 2014. Billed as Tungsten 2021, the Tungsten Conference will be co-located with PowderMet 2021 and The Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy Conference. The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) is hosting all of the events and activities from June 20-23, 2021 in Orlando, Florida.
With over 200 technical presentations, the Tungsten Conference will be a provide a great opportunity for learning. Many presentations relate to tungsten powder production and finished tungsten products. Applications such as additive manufacturing and sintering will each have multiple presentations. Other speakers will address specific research topics of current interest to the tungsten industry. There will also be information on material properties and measurement more general to powdered metallurgy applications as a whole.
Tungsten Conference Exhibition Hall
The exhibition hall will feature over 100 companies. Powder producers, instrument manufacturers, and equipment manufacturers will all be on display in addition to others.
Buffalo Tungsten will provide technical information on all of our products. Some of our recent developments include:
Tungsten Carbide Thermal Spray Powders – Improvements to our processes have increased our densities by up to 20%. The morphology, or shape of the particles, has also changed to provide better flow properties as well.
Ultra High Purity Tungsten Powder – As a tungsten powder producer we are always striving to increase the purity of our powdered tungsten materials. For instance, we have recently added equipment that allows us to produce tungsten powder that reaches 99.999% purity. This is a premium product that results from a difficult multi-step process.
High Green Strength Tungsten Powder – Recent research and development efforts have improved the green strength in our tungsten powders. This is of benefit in particular to customers who are pressing and sintering heavy alloys and other materials.
We are excited to be a part of this wonderful event. The Tungsten Conference is not held every year, and it is a tremendous opportunity for learning and networking. We invite you to visit our booth (117) and hope to see you soon!
