MIM2016 conference heads to California

A Call for Presentations has been issued for the MIM2016 conference technical program organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). The International Conference on the Injection Moulding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, will take place in Irvine, California, USA, from March 7-9 2016.

The focus of the technical program is innovative processes and materials. The organisers state that innovation in different segments of Powder Injection Moulding is responsible for the rapid growth of this field. The PIM industry, comprising Metal Injection Moulding and Ceramic Injection Moulding, has estimated sales of around $1.5 billion and this could double in a span of five years.

The objective of the conference is to explore the innovations and latest accomplishments in the areas of part design, tooling, moulding, debinding and sintering of PIM parts. The conference will also focus on developments in the PIM processing of different materials including metals and alloys, ceramics and hard materials.

The event is targeted at product designers, engineers, consumers, manufacturers, researchers, educators and students. All individuals with an interest in the application of Powder Injection Moulding are encouraged to attend.

The event is sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA), a trade association of the MPIF. It will be chaired by Thomas K Houck, ARCMIM, and Stefan Joens, Elnik Systems, LLC. The abstract submission deadline is September 30, 2015.
