MIM2018, International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, concluded in sunny Irvine, California, last week. This year’s MIM conference was the largest to date, breaking attendance records by more than 15%, with over 180 attendees representing 104 companies from 16 countries. A reception was held at molding machine manufacturer Arburg.
Two big conferences—one big city! POWDERMET2018: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, and the co-located conference AMPM2018, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, have launched their full programming online. The conferences will be held at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Texas, June 17–20, 2018.
MIM2018 will bring together the metal injection molding industry in just a few short days, March 5–7, in Irvine, California. This year's conference is set to be the largest in history with over 180 pre-registered attendees to date. Conference delegates representing 105 companies from 15 countries are attending technical sessions and a tabletop exhibition.
The Metal Powder Industries Federation’s Industry Development Board has released another video in a four-part educational series on powder metallurgy. The "Conventional Press-and-Sinter Powder Metallurgy" (PM) video is hosted by industry leader John Engquist, FAPMI, past president of the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT), and covers an overview of conventional PM that includes a discussion on aspect ratio, a process overview, and the display of several PM Design Excellence Awards components as case studies.
The Technical Program Committees for POWDERMET2018, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, and AMPM2018, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, met recently to assemble the program for the June 17–20 co-located conferences in San Antonio. Nearly 90 industry experts met to review abstracts for technical papers and presentations. The results of the committees’ diligent work:
