Registration has opened for the only international powder and metal injection molding conference of the year, MIM2017, run by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF).

The international conference on injection molding of metals, ceramics and carbides is a global conference and tabletop exhibition that highlights advances in the powder injection molding (PIM) industry and will take place from 27 February –1 March 2017 in Orlando, Florida.

At the conference, PIM industry veteran Randall M German, FAPMI, will present a tutorial on powder injection molding, focusing on how to determine 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,’ said Dan Messina, technical services manager, MPIF. ‘If you're a product designer, engineer, consumer, manufacturer, researcher, educator, or student, then we hope to see you there.’
