Programme published for MIM2012, the International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics, and Carbides

December 15, 2011

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced the publication of the conference programme for the MIM2012 International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics, and Carbides. The event will be held from March 19–21 2012 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, San Diego, California, USA.

MIM2012 is co-sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association, a trade association of MPIF, and its affiliate APMI International. The event also offers an optional one-day tutorial on powder injection molding (PIM).

With a focus on “designing MIM parts and materials for performance and value,” the organisers state that this specialised conference is targeted at engineers, product designers, manufacturers, consumers, researchers, educators and students who have an interest in the application of powder injection molding. It features over 20 presentations as well as a tabletop exhibition and networking reception.

The PIM industry, comprised of MIM (metal injection molding), CIM (ceramic injection molding), and CCIM (cemented carbide injection molding), has sales estimated at over $1 billion and could possibly double over the next five years. The industry has realised major technological advances and overcome numerous business challenges.

The objective of the conference is to continue to explore these advances, assist in the transfer of technology, and investigate new developments in the field of powder injection molding of metals, ceramics, and carbides.

The technical program chairmen for the conference are Bruce Dionne, General Manager, Megamet Solid Metals, Inc., Earth City, Missouri, and Toby Tingskog, Regional Sales Manager-NAFTA, Sandvik Osprey Ltd., Neath, UK.
