2012 China MIM Symposium takes place in Kazuo; Chinese MIM committee formed

October 27, 2012

The first “China MIM Symposium” was held in Kazuo County, Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province, from 1-3 August 2012. The event, organised by the Powder Metallurgy Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance, attracted more than 80 delegates from MIM enterprises, institutes and universities as well as representative from overseas MIM producers and suppliers.

Presentations covered all aspects of Powder Injection Moulding, including micro injection moulding, how injection moulding process parameters affect parts, and manufacturing methods. The injection moulding of parts for the automotive industry was also reviewed, along with examples of award-winning MIM products. Proceedings on the symposium have been published.

The importance of MIM technology as a rapidly growing manufacturing area was acknowledged by the participants, with the organisation of such seminars being regarded as extremely important to review progress, identify technology gaps, and to promote the development of the MIM business in China.

The establishment of a MIM Professional Committee took place in parallel with the event, the purpose of which is to pursue the development of international standards, to build cooperation between enterprises and governments as production, learning and research. Such a development, it was stated, will better serve the Chinese Metal Injection Moulding industry and contribute to its continuing rapid and positive development. Professor Qu Xuanhui was elected Chairman of the committee.
