The Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering (IWM) at RWTH Aachen University and the Institute for Application Technology Powder Metallurgy and Ceramics at RWTH Aachen e.V.. (IAPK) invite you to next year's colloquium of the institute network under the title "Design and construction with hard materials". On 17 March 2022, ten interesting lectures on current research topics from science and industry await you in Aachen. The spectrum will range from classic structural ceramics to ceramic composites, hard metals and tool steels.

In a comprehensive overview lecture, Professor R. Danzer will introduce design with ceramics, taking strength and fracture statistics into account, before practical examples of dental ceramics and ceramic valves follow. Special features in the production and design of composites will be addressed in lectures on ceramic-metal brazing composites by Alumina Systems and tungsten fibre-reinforced tungsten materials by Dr. J.W. Coenen. Factors influencing the deformation & fatigue behaviour of WC-Co carbides as well as their strength in the additively manufactured material variant will be discussed by Dr. Klünsner and Ms. S. Fries. Mr. L. Scholl will report on the design of high-strength tools made of tool steel under multi-axial cyclic loading. Finally, anyone who would like to can take advantage of a tour of the institute at the IAPK/IWM for a joint exchange.

You can obtain information and register by e-mail info@iapk.rwth-aachen.de or by telephone (+49 241 80-95534).
