IWM-IAPK Colloquium 2021
On September 23, 2021, the IWM-IAPK Colloquium could finally take place in Aachen. Under the title "Additive Manufacturing of Hard Materials", numerous top-class speakers gave presentations and invited discussions on the topic.
The event attracted over 60 participants from industry and business to Aachen. Among the program items was the tribute to Prof. Horst Maier (founder and honorary member of the IAPK, formerly IPAK). On the occasion of his 80th birthday, which he celebrated this year, he was presented by Prof. Broeckmann and Mrs. Scharrer (Göller Verlag) with a special issue of CFI (Ceramic Forum International) containing articles written by his former PhD students.
The event, which was delayed by the Corona situation and which could now finally take place in-person, was a complete success and enthused all those present. Especially the personal exchange and the debates stimulated by the presentations were very much enjoyed.
