Powder Metal Magnetic Materials & Testing Seminar in October 

A two-day seminar on powder metallurgy magnetic materials and testing will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana on October 25-26. The program is sponsored by Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and will be held at the laboratory and premises of Magnet-Physics. 

Attendees will be able to learn about the variety of powder-metal magnetic materials that are available, how to test them and their market potentials. Materials covered will include soft-magnetic alloys, soft magnetic composites and sintered permanent magnets. Testing subjects will include copper wire wound toroids, AC and DC analysis. Key applications covered will be motors and electrical devices. 

Designed for individuals that have a minimum understanding of powder metallurgy magnetic materials and their properties, the program starts with a broad introduction of magnetic terminology and builds the attendees understanding of the unique properties of magnetic materials.  It includes 4 hours of hands on training in the Magnetic Physics Laboratory measuring and analyzing magnetic fields of PM magnetic materials. Fees range from $1,500 to $1,800. For more info, see www.mpif.org
