APMI International, a professional society serving the needs of individuals working in the Powder Metallurgy industry, has announced the release of its Powder Injection Moulding virtual tutorial. Presented by Dr Randall M German, FAPMI, professor emeritus, San Diego State University, the self-study course is designed to provide a comprehensive foundation of the technology.

The course videos will be available to view for five days after purchase, and include an introduction to the manufacturing processes, feedstocks, moulding, debinding, sintering and finishing. A definition of what constitutes a viable PIM component, along with a comparison of PIM to competing technologies, is discussed. The course will also review the economic advantages of PIM.

Recorded in 2018, the four-part, six-hour course includes the following videos:

  • Part 1: Introduction, Materials and Binders (two hours)
  • Part 2: Injection Moulding, Debinding and Sintering (two hours)
  • Part 3: PIM Part Design, Cost and Facilities (one hour)
  • Part 4: Overview of PIM Markets and Opportunities (one hour)

Each registrant will also receive electronic copies of ‘Metal Injection Molding – A Comprehensive MIM Design Guide’, ‘Injection Molding and Ceramics’ and the ‘MPIF Standard 35-MIM 2018 Edition Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts’.

The course registration fee also includes a full-year of APMI International membership.

Further details and registration are available here.
