Opportunity to promote MIM technology at SAE 2010

June 18, 2009

The Powder Metallurgy (PM) Committee of SAE’s Materials Engineering Activity is inviting technical presentations to be submitted for possible inclusion in the 2010 SAE World Congress & Exposition, April 12–15 2010.

A dedicated session (Powder Metallurgy M 501) is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13, and will focus on ‘green and sustainable PM technology’ relating to the automotive parts industry. This includes parts produced by Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology.

According to the Metal Powder Industries Federation, “The aim of the program is to promote the ‘green’ benefits of PM and MIM. The benefits of near-net-shape design, minimal scrap generation, dimensional accuracy and part complexity should be stressed in the presentation. To continue with this theme, it is suggested that any elements of ‘green’ that were used in manufacture, design and development or transportation of a part or process be included as part of the paper.”

The use of MIM technology in the automotive sector is currently strongest in Europe, where smaller more fuel efficient engines are common, along with turbocharged diesel engines. MIM automotive parts range from high performance turbocharger and valvetrain components to ‘value adding’ interior components that offer a high degree of surface finish.

MIM technology is expected to play a key role in the production of the new generation of vehicles, including those powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Selected PIM related automotive resources from www.pim-international.com are detailed at the end of this article.

Participation in this session is open to all companies, however oral presentations and written manuscripts must be automotive applications oriented. A publishable manuscript is a requirement of presentation. Authors must agree to submit a written paper for publication by and according to the SAE International publishing schedule/standards.

  • Deadline for Abstract Submissions: July 15, 2009
  • Draft Manuscripts Due: September 30, 2009
  • Final Approved Manuscript Due to SAE: January 18, 2010

If you would like to submit an abstract or have questions regarding abstract submission contact Jim Adams, Metal Powder Industries Federation, at [email protected]
