MIM2020 international conference returns to Irvine, California, next March

MIM2020 will be held in Irvine, California


MIM2020, The International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, will be held in Irvine, California, USA, from March 2–4, 2020. MIM2020 is a global conference and tabletop exhibition that highlights advances in the metal and Ceramic Injection Moulding industries.

The annual conference is sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA), a trade association of the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and its affiliate APMI International.

The 2020 conference will be chaired by Michael Wiseman, ARC Group Worldwide, and Tom Pelletiers, Kymera International. A call for papers has been issued, with an abstract submission deadline of October 4, 2019.

The event returns to Hotel Irvine and highlights are set to include:

  • A full conference programme of both high-level technical research and commercially-oriented presentations
  • Tabletop Exhibition & Networking Reception
  • The annual PIM Tutorial, presented by industry veteran Randall M German

This year’s MIM2019 welcomed more than 150 attendees, representing ninety-five companies from fifteen countries. The event once again saw a significant number of delegates from the metal AM industry, in particular those with a focus on the ‘MIM-like’ Binder Jetting and FFF processes.
