Powder Injection Molding Tutorial —VIRTUAL On-Demand Encore Event

May 3–5, 2021

Presented by: Metal Powder Industries Federation

Dr. Randall M. German, FAPMI, the world’s most recognized authority on the injection molding of metals (MIM), ceramics (CIM), and cemented carbides (CCIM), provides an in-depth review of this exciting technology. Recorded in 2018, this 4 part, 6-hour encore video provides a comprehensive foundation of the technology. The 4 videos (Part 1: Introduction, Materials and Binders - 2 hours, Part 2: Injection Molding, Debinding and Sintering – 2 hours, Part 3: PIM Part Design, Cost and Facilities – 1 hour, and Part 4: Overview of PIM Markets and Opportunities – 1 Hour) can be viewed at your own pace from May 3-5.

The tutorial includes:

  • Introduction to the manufacturing processes: feedstocks, molding, debinding, sintering, and finishing
  • Definition of what constitutes a viable PIM component and selection of materials based on the components expectations and required properties
  • Assessment of the critical features of dimensional accuracy and material performance
  • Comparison of PIM to competing technologies
  • Review of the economic advantages of PIM
  • New applications, emerging markets, and examples of products never thought possible in net-shape manufacturing until PIM.

As a bonus, each registrant receives  electronic copies of Metal Injection Molding-A Comprehensive MIM Design Guide, Injection Molding of Metals and Ceramics, and the MPIF Standard 35-MIM 2018 Edition Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts, valued at $250!
