The MIM2015 International Conference on the Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics & Carbides will be held at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel, Tampa, Florida, USA from February 23-25 2015. The conference, which is sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA), has the objective of exploring the latest advances in MIM, assisting in the transfer of technology, and investigating new developments in the field of injection moulding of metal, ceramics, and carbides.
In addition to regional review presentations and technical presentations, a number of PIM design case studies will be featured throughout the conference. There will also be a workshop on Energy Management in MIM Processing by Robin Kent, Tangram Technology, UK, on the afternoon of Wednesday February 25. This workshop covers all aspects of energy management for MIM, including processing methods, operations, monitoring and targeting.
Immediately prior to the conference, on February 23, a one day PIM tutorial will be conducted by Prof Randall German, San Diego State University. This optional course, which requires a separate registration fee, is an ideal way for anyone looking for a solid grounding in PIM to obtain a comprehensive foundation in a short period of time.
