Learn the power of powder-based manufacturing at these upcoming events

Feb. 3, 2014
The Powder Injection Molding (PIM) industry has estimated sales of nearly $1.5 billion and could potentially double over the next five years. Want to learn how to successfully enter the market, assist in the transfer of technology, or be the first to hear about new developments?

The Powder Injection Molding (PIM) industry has estimated sales of nearly $1.5 billion and could potentially double over the next five years. The PIM industry includes:

• MIM — metal injection molding

• CIM — ceramic injection molding, and

• CCIM — cemented carbide injection molding.

Want to learn how to successfully enter the market, assist in the transfer of technology, or be the first to hear about new developments?

On February 24 to 26 in Long Beach, Calif., industry enthusiasts will gather at the MIM 2014 International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides. For newbies, there is a full-day course being offered on Monday to cover the basics of PIM. Students will learn the basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, over 20 sessions will cover topics pertaining to the use of PIM in industries like aerospace, medical, and forensics. Additionally, sessions will cover new design and material findings like advances in titanium, challenges in CIM, binder systems and sintering, and superalloys and wear-resistant alloys.

But the power of powder doesn’t stop there. On May 18 to 22 in Orlando, Fla. the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International will co-host the PM2014 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials. Two specific industry conferences will also be co-located at the event. One is the Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference, and new this year is the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy.
