New consultancy specialising in Metal Injection Moulding and Powder Metallurgy established in Japan

April 21, 2010

New consultancy specialising in MIMng and PM established in Japan - 000943Kato Yoshiyuki, a highly respected member of the Japanese and international Powder Metallurgy (PM) community, recently retired from his role as Director of Epson Atmix Corporation and has established a consultancy office in Yokahama, Japan. The new consultancy will serve all areas of Powder Metallurgy as well as the high growth Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industry.

After leaving Pacific Metals he was a central figure in the establishment of atomised metal powder producer and MIM parts maker Atmix, a venture supported by Seiko Epson.

“I have enjoyed 35 years in the PM industry”, Kato Yoshiyuki told PIM International, “and look forward to keeping in contact with the many friends I have made. The Atmix business principles remain at the heart of my business philosophy. I believe that Atmix has made a positive contribution to the MIM industry’s development, with its unique combination of powder manufacturing and MIM parts fabrication. I still, of course, enjoy a good relationship with Atmix and look forward to contributing to the industry.”

Kato Yoshiyuki has been a valued supporter and a Consulting Editor of Powder Injection Moulding International since its launch in 2007 and we wish him every success for his new venture.
