PM versus MIM: Free webinar for component designers during IHS GlobalSpec event

October 7, 2013

TM&S President Derek Rasmussen will present a free webinar for engineering and sales professionals involved in component design during IHS GlobalSpec’s Aerospace Technology online event. The Webinar, Powder Metal Part Design Fundamentals, is scheduled for October 23, 2013, and will compare and contrast the characteristics and best uses for conventional press and sinter Powder Metallurgy (PM) and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

Both PM and MIM are classified as powder metal technologies, but there are vast differences between them in terms of manufacturing processes and capabilities. The session will help engineering, sales, and other professionals involved in component design for manufacture understand the characteristics and best uses for PM and MIM, respectively.

With 20 years’ experience in component design, mould design, part processing, and troubleshooting high-volume manufacturing processes to increase yields, Rasmussen is uniquely qualified to give attendees a fundamental comparison of PM and MIM manufacturing technologies. The webinar will help participants improve their cost analysis and sourcing decisions, as well as enhance communication with suppliers.
