Registration has opened for MIM2019: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides—the only international powder and metal injection molding conference of the year. MIM2019 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, February 25–27, 2019.
An official call for papers and posters has been announced for POWDERMET2019, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, to be held June 23–26, 2019, in Phoenix, Arizona. This leading North American powder metallurgy (PM) conference will take place at the Sheraton Grand in the heart of the city.
The North American powder metallurgy (PM) industry headed to Texas earlier this week to stroll the famous San Antonio Riverwalk during POWDERMET2018 and AMPM2018. These co-located conferences brought together 872 delegates from 25 countries for four days of the latest research and development in powder metallurgy, particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing, as well as annual industry awards presentations and networking.
The MPIF Awards Committee announced a 2018 Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy (PM) Award during POWDERMET2018, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, in San Antonio, Texas, June 17–20. The award recognizes individuals who have actively served the North American PM industry for at least 25 years and, in the minds of their peers, deserve special recognition.
The winners in the 2018 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), demonstrate outstanding examples of PM’s diversity. These component fabricators use PM’s flexibility to push forward new concepts and process controls and demonstrate the inexhaustible well of capabilities PM can marshal in the service of component design. Designers continue to choose PM for critical applications such as auto engines and transmissions, medical devices, consumer products, military applications, and more.
