  • Parametric Optimization of Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Process Using ANOVA and ANNs
    Md. Hamiuddin and Praveen Pachauri

A special keynote presentation will be made by Lars Gehlback, of Sybon Dental Specialties, USA, focusing on the advantages of MIM over competing technologies and on the impact the technology has made in orthodontics.


Powder Injection Molding Tutorial

In addition to conference sessions, there will also be a 1 day Powder Injection Molding Tutorial presented by Randall M. German, San Diego State University.

This will provide a basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing. Individuals who will benefit from the tutorial include engineers, business managers, procurement managers, component designers, and technicians.

This course is also a must for consumers of PIM components and organizations that are exploring the opportunities associated with developing their own PIM manufacturing facilities.
