The MPIF has set the date for a four-part online tutorial covering powder injection molding.

The tutorial, hosted by molding specialist Dr Randall M German, FAPMI, features four videos that can be viewed at the user’s own pace from 15-17 September.

Originally recorded at MIM2018, the tutorial includes:

  • Introduction to the manufacturing processes: feedstocks, molding, debinding, sintering, and finishing
  • Definition of what constitutes a viable PIM component and selection of materials based on the components expectations and required properties
  • Assessment of the critical features of dimensional accuracy and material performance
  • Comparison of PIM to competing technologies
  • Review of the economic advantages of PIM
  • New applications, emerging markets, and examples of products never thought possible in net-shape manufacturing until PIM.

Each registrant will also receive electronic copies of Metal Injection Molding – A Comprehensive Mim Design Guide, Injection Molding Of Metals And Ceramics, and the MPIF Standard 35-MIM 2018 Edition Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts, the MPIF said.
