APMI International Appoints Fellows

APMI International, a professional society for the powder metallurgy (PM) industry, has named two new members to its 2011 Class of Fellows: William R. Gasbarre, marketing/sales director of Gasbarre Products Inc.; and Graham B. Schaffer, executive dean at the University of Queensland, Faculty of Engineering.

Gasbarre has devoted 38 years to the PM industry. As a member of the APMI Board of Directors (president 1998–2000 and director 1994–98), he helped develop the APMI Fellow Award and the Train-the-Trainer program. He is also a past chairman of the West Penn APMI Chapter. A member of APMI International for 33 years, he continues to be an active member of the APMI Publications & Awards Committees. He is a member of the MPIF Technical Board and the Chairman of its Conference Committee.

Schaffer is an international authority on particulate materials processing, primarily focused on the light metals. His work has reportedly had significant academic and commercial impact, and has transformed the field of aluminum powder metallurgy. As executive dean, Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology, the University of Queensland, Graham has devoted 27 years to the PM industry. He has led research teams on the powder processing of aluminum, titanium, iron, and steel, as well as intermetallics, composites, nanomaterials, and magnetic materials.
