Metal Powder Industries Federation

The Metal Powder Industries Federation is a federation of six trade associations representing various aspects of powder metallurgy (PM), metal powders, and particulate materials. Our mission is to advance the interests of the metal powder producing and consuming industries.

Throughout its long history, MPIF has been a champion of this innovative technology, providing our member companies with valuable services that help advance the art and science of powder metallurgy while promoting technological benefits to prospective end users.
