Registration Opens for 2017 Metal Injection Molding Conference

November 2016

Registration has opened for the only international powder and metal injection molding conference of the year. MIM2017: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, February 27–March 1, 2017, is a global conference and tabletop exhibition that highlights advances in the powder injection molding (PIM) industry. The conference will take place in Orlando, Florida, at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista.

As a bonus offering, PIM industry veteran Randall M. German, FAPMI, San Diego State University, will present a tutorial on powder injection molding Monday, February 27. This tutorial will provide a basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing.

"The MIM2017 conference is ideal for industry professionals looking to broaden their knowledge of PIM technology, and this year there is a focus on enhancing attendee understanding of how PIM can work alongside metal additive manufacturing." explains Dan Messina, technical services manager, Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). "If you're a product designer, engineer, consumer, manufacturer, researcher, educator, or student, then we hope to see you there."

The PIM industry is composed of metal injection molding, ceramic injection molding, and cemented carbide injection molding—an advanced manufacturing industry with sales assessed at nearly $2 billion globally. This conference will provide a venue for the latest technology transfer.
