The industrialization of the SPF process has its primary roots in the aerospace manufacturing sector, but recent advances in technology and materials have driven broader applications. SPF is now being used to fabricate automotive body parts, rail car fabrications, Class 8 truck parts, motorcycle components, medical implants, architectural panels, electronic housings and other products.
The original use of superplastic materials was mainly for aluminum and titanium applications. Discoveries made around the globe have led to the advancement of superplastic ceramics, inter-metallics, nano materials, plastics, glasses and other materials. The ICSAM 2009 Conference will feature technical presentations on all of the materials of interests.
The objective of this conference is to bring together both academic and industrial persons with an interest in the field of superplasticity, with the hope of promoting teamwork, collaborations and partnering to further the technology for the entire world.
