Registration opens for the MIM2017 Metal Injection Moulding conference

December 5, 2016

Registration has now opened for the MIM2017 International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides. The event, which takes place from February 27th to March 1st 2017 at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Florida, is the only international conference dedicated to Powder Injection Moulding. The conference, in combination with a tabletop exhibition, will, once again highlight the latest advances in the PIM industry.
Dan Messina, Technical Services Manager at the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), stated, “The MIM2017 conference is ideal for industry professionals looking to broaden their knowledge of PIM technology and this year there is a focus on enhancing attendee understanding of how PIM can work alongside metal Additive Manufacturing. If you’re a product designer, engineer, consumer, manufacturer, researcher, educator or student, then we hope to see you there.”

In addition to the conference, Prof Randall M. German, FAPMI, San Diego State University, will present a tutorial on Powder Injection Moulding on Monday, February 27. This will provide a basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing.

MIM2017 is sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA), a trade association within Metal Powder Industries Federation. MIMA’s objectives include improving and promoting the products of the Metal Injection Molding industry as well as promoting the investigation, research and interchange of ideas among its members.
