Workshop focuses on medical applications for microPIM

January 18, 2009

“This event has been designed to provide an excellent forum for scientists and engineers from various regions of the world to collaborate, identify key issues, and document the current status of microMIM and MicroCIM in the medical sector…”

A one and a half day workshop addressing scientific issues relating to the application of micro and nano powder injection moulding (PIM) in the medical sector will take place in Orlando, Florida, March 4-5 2009. This immediately follows the main PIM2009 conference sessions.

The workshop brings together leading individuals from around the world, including invited speakers from Germany, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, USA, and Korea. Presentations will focus on all aspects of this opportunity for PIM technology, from moulding, sintering and modelling to commercial applications.

The workshop is co-chaired by Prof. Randall German (San Diego State University, USA) and Dr. Young-Sam Kwon (CetaTech, Korea). German told PIM International, “This event has been designed to provide an excellent forum for scientists and engineers from various regions of the world to collaborate, identify key issues, and document the current status of microMIM (micro metal injection molding) and MicroCIM (micro ceramic injection moulding) in the medical sector. In addition, we hope that it will sow the seeds for future international collaboration among scientists and engineers around the world and open opportunities for future student exchanges and sabbatical visits.”
