Since September 1st, 2023, LWT is collaborating with Dr. Sergiy Teus (G.V. Kurdyumov Institute for Metal Physics N.A.S. of Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine) in the course of a Digital Cooperation Fellowship. Dr. Teus is funded as an alumnus by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and is working on the hydrogen effect on the physical properties of structural metallic materials. We are looking forward to a successful cooperation and kindly acknowledge the financial support of the AvH Foundation.
In the presence of Hendrik Wüst, Minister President of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, a new plant for the production of spherical metal powders using the VIGA technology was opened at Outokumpu in Krefeld in early August.
In July, the 12th THERMEC Conference on "Processing & Manufacturing of Advanced Materials" took place in Vienna. Over five days, more than 500 presentations were delivered on topics ranging from additive manufacturing to biomimetic materials. The LWT was also represented at the conference with a presentation on "AI techniques for microstructural characterization of PM high-speed steels" and a poster on "HIP post-processing of additively processed highly interstitial alloyed austenitic steels".
