Arburg’s second international Powder Injection Moulding conference is set to take place in Lossburg, Germany, from June 5-6, 2018. Invited participants from around the world will meet at the company’s headquarters in order to examine current trends in the PIM industry.

Arburg’s first international PIM conference was held in Lossburg in 2013 to celebrate fifty years of the company’s involvement in PIM. This first event was praised for its distinctive international character, which provided the opportunity for 250 industry experts to network and conduct discussions as to the benefits and opportunities for the technology.

Commenting on the event’s second iteration, Gerhard Böhm, Arburg’s Managing Director Sales, stated, “We would now like to build on this success and hold the second major event of this kind for the international PIM world in June 2018.”

On both days of the event, focused presentations will review the potential, technical options and future prospects for the PIM process, enabling companies to exchange their experiences of the industry. Experts from globally active companies and institutions in the US, Asia and Europe have been invited to present during the conference, including keynote presentations from:

  • Professor Randall M German, San Diego State University, USA: ‘The future of Powder Injection Moulding: Growth in materials versus applications’
  • Professor Peng Yu, South University of Science and Technology of China: ‘The current status of and outlook for the Asian PIM sector’
  • Professor Frank Petzoldt, Fraunhofer IFAM, Germany: ‘Current developments in MIM technology’

In addition, Arburg reports that speakers from international PIM part producers will report on practical application examples, while material manufacturers will present on the latest feedstock innovations. PIM specialists from Arburg itself are expected to present the company’s latest innovations in areas including mould technology.

The event will also offer visitors the opportunity to view PIM part production in practice. In the Arburg Customer Center, injection moulding machines will produce a number of PIM components in the breaks between presentations, so that the participants can experience the process ‘live’. During a company tour, visitors will also be able to view Arburg machines during their production and assembly.
