MIM producer PCC-AFT takes a unique approach to educating end-users

October 24, 2010

Parts producer PCC Advanced Forming Technology, head quartered in Longmount, CO, USA, and with additional production facilities in Hungary, is taking a hands-on approach to educating users as to the benefits of the MIM process.

The company runs a series of free introductory seminars, called “The AFT-MIM School”, in both USA and Europe specifically targeted at the end-user community, including engineers, buyers and quality control specialists in the mechanical components field.

The result is a series of two day courses that provide a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of MIM processing. Sessions are dedicated to:

  • Powders and Compounding
  • Injection Moulding
  • Designing for MIM
  • Manufacturing Steps
  • Quality
  • Secondary Operations

Participants also learn how to combine two materials in one component, design with internal threads that require no machining, and combine several components and assemblies into one part.
