APMI International: APMI International is a non-profit professional society which promotes the advancement of powder metallurgy (PM) and particulate materials as a science. Its purpose is to disseminate and exchange information about PM and particulate materials through publications, conferences, and other activities of the society.

Center for Powder Metallurgy: The Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT) merges the academic and corporate powder metallurgy (PM) worlds together with a joint goal to promote PM industry progress. This progress depends on the business community and its drive for profit, and it also takes the educational community with its dedication to research and the pursuit of knowledge.

PickPM: A powder metallurgy information resource for component designers and engineers. Learn the basics of powder metallurgy and its processes, review case studies based on award-winning components, and find a fabricator to help design and build a component.

Metal Injection Molding Association: The Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Association is composed of firms commercially engages in the production of injection molded metal or ceramic products utilizing powder materials; suppliers of powder materials used in metal or ceramic injection molding, or equipment suppliers of binder systems, feedstock, molds, molding machines, or debinding or sintering equipment to producers of metal or ceramic injection molded parts.

Global PM Property Database: The Global PM Property Database provides material property information covering a wide range of powder metallurgy material systems. Its aim is to enable designers/manufacturers of components and systems to make an informed choice about using PM materials in a wide variety of applications. The information on the site has been gathered from a multitude of companies and organizations from around the globe.

Isostatic Pressing Association: While the Isostatic Pressing Association (IPA) members have been absorbed into other associations after the formation of the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing, the IPA

European Powder Metallurgy Association

Formed in Brussels in 1989, the EPMA has three key missions: to promote and develop PM technology in Europe,. to represent the European PM industry within Europe and internationally, and to develop the future of PM. The EPMA serves all types of member organisations, from component, metal powder, and equipment producers to end users, research centres, universities, and individuals who have an interest in PM.

Japan Powder Metallurgy Association

The JPMA serves the interests of the powder metallurgy industry in Japan.

National Association of Manufacturers

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is the nation's largest industrial trade association representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. The NAM is the powerful voice of the manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers create jobs and growth. The NAM—10,000 manufacturing companies and nearly 12 million workers—is our strongest force for sensible government policies that will reduce the cost of production and tear down barriers to exports.

Laser Institute of America

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) is the international society for laser applications and safety. Their mission is to foster lasers, laser applications, and laser safety worldwide.

The Center for Innovative Sintered Products

The Center for Innovative Sintered Products (CISP) at Penn State is a true partnership between universities, industry, government agencies and professional and trade associations to develop cutting-edge technology for the processing of sintered materials. CISP was formed as an outgrowth of the PM Lab and other campus-wide efforts to focus Penn State resources on this important industry. The Center is headquartered at University Park, but shares tasks with engineers and scientists from universities and companies across the U.S. and abroad.

SAE International

The Society of Automotive Engineers has more than 90,000 members—engineers, business executives, educators, and students from more than 97 countries—who share information and exchange ideas for advancing the engineering of mobility systems. SAE is a one-stop resource for standards development, events, and technical information and expertise used in designing, building, maintaining, and operating self-propelled vehicles for use on land or sea, in air or space.

ASTM International

ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations in the world—a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy.

Metal Powder Report

Published monthly, Metal Powder Report helps professionals across the world to stay on top of the latest news and features on technical trends in the manufacture, research, and use of metal powders, bringing them a global perspective of the PM industry.

Powder Injection Moulding International

The International Thermal Spray Association is a professional trade association dedicated to expanding the use of thermal spray technologies for the benefit of industry and society. Founded in 1948, and once known as Metallizing Service Contractors, the association has been closely tied to almost all major advances in thermal spray technology, equipment and materials, industry events, education, standards and market development in North and South America.
