Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards
Each year since 1965, MPIF has sponsored an awards competition in which parts fabricators among our member companies are invited to submit components that epitomize the possibilities inherent in this metal-forming technology. A distinguished panel of industry judges evaluates the entries according to a stringent set of criteria and awards Grand Prizes and Awards of Distinction to those powder metallurgy parts deemed worthy.
The awards are presented each year at a luncheon during the annual technical conference and details about the winning parts appear in many publications over the next year, giving added exposure to these achievements in PM design while honoring the fabricators and end users responsible for them.
The 2019 PM DEA Competition is now open.
For the competition’s 55th anniversary, MPIF is pleased to announce that all components will be divided into three categories for judging:
- conventional powder metallurgy
- metal injection molding
- and metal additive manufacturing (NEW).
Submission Deadline: February 1, 2019.
