“The metal injection molding industry is an innovative and highly competitive marketplace,” explains Paul Sedor, vice president, member and industry relations, Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). “The annual MIM conference provides an optimal venue for gaining industry insight and learning about the latest technology.”
Last year’s MIM2019 attracted over 150 attendees representing 95 companies from 15 countries. Attendees consisted of 38% parts manufacturers; 30% equipment & service providers; 11% powder and feedstock suppliers; 5% consumers; and 16% other, which includes students and academia. A similar attendance base is expected for 2020.
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.
Optional: The annual PIM Tutorial will be presented by industry veteran Randall M. German, FAPMI, Prof. Emeritus, San Diego State University, on Monday, March 2. The Tutorial will provide a basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing.
