Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics, and Carbides set for March 2011

December 13, 2010

Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics, and Carbides set for March 2011 - MIM2011The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) announces the opening of registration for MIM2011, an international conference on injection molding of metals, ceramics, and carbides, to be held March 14–16, 2011, at the Hilton in the Walt Disney World Resort, Lake Buena Vista (Orlando), Florida.

The conference, sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association, a trade association of MPIF, and its affiliate APMI International, also offers an optional one-day tutorial on powder injection molding (PIM).

This specialised conference is targeted at engineers, product designers, manufacturers, consumers, researchers, educators, and students who have an interest in the application of injection molding of metals, ceramics, and carbides. It features 27 presentations as well as a tabletop exhibition and networking reception.

The PIM industry, comprised of MIM (metal injection molding), CIM (ceramic injection molding), and CCIM (cemented carbide injection molding), has sales estimated at over $1 billion and could possibly double over the next five years. The industry has realized major technological advances and overcome numerous business challenges.

The objective of the conference is to continue to explore these advances, assist in the transfer of technology, and investigate new developments in the field of powder injection molding of metals, ceramics, and carbides.

The technical program chairmen for the conference are Animesh Bose, FAPMI, President, Materials Processing, Inc., Haltom City, Texas, and Bruce Dionne, General Manager, Megamet Solid Metals, Inc., Earth City, Missouri.
