The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) was formed in Brussels in 1989, and has three key missions:
- to promote and develop powder metallurgy (PM) technology in Europe
- to represent the European PM industry within Europe and internationally
- to develop the future of PM
These are achieved using a variety of means, a selection of which are described on the EPMA activities page.
The EPMA serves all types of member organisations; from component, metal powder, and equipment producers to end-users, research centres, universities and individuals who have an interest in PM.
