The European Powder Metallurgy Association’s Powder Injection Moulding Short Course took place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 15–17. The intensive course featured two days of presentations by some of Europe’s leading industry suppliers, researchers, academics and parts makers.
The event attracted around 50 participants and those new to PIM technology made the most of the opportunity to network and consult with industry leaders. Of note was the number of participants from the European aerospace industry and from discussions it is clear that this will be a significant growth area for PIM in Europe, particularly with regards to titanium and high temperature materials.
Given the level of interest in PIM technology it is hoped that such an event can become a regular fixture in the European PIM calendar.
