Metal Injection Moulding: Past successes and future opportunities in the automotive industry

Metal Injection Moulding has made tremendous advances over the last decade in penetrating a host of important global markets, from the aerospace and 3C industries to the automotive, medical and firearms sectors. Despite suffering from a general lack of awareness amongst automotive designers and engineers, the number of MIM automotive applications continues to rise at an impressive rate. In this report, Nick Williams, Managing Editor of PIM International, reviews the development of MIM automotive applications and the future outlook for this important end-user sector.

A study in the use of optical metrology to analyse the effectiveness of post-processing operations in MIM

For many MIM components, one or more post-processing operations may be required in order to achieve specific properties for an application. Such operations may be aimed at improving surface finish, increasing final density, or achieving a specific hardness. In the following study Swiss MIM specialist Parmaco Metal Injection Molding AG and Austrian optical metrology specialist Alicona Imaging GmbH investigate the potential of optical metrology to analyse the effectiveness and impact of selected post-processing operations.

Ceramitec 2015: Part makers and industry suppliers on show in Munich

Ceramitec 2015, the most important international trade exhibition for the ceramics industry, was held from October 20-23, 2015 in Munich, Germany. While the exhibition covered the entire supply chain of the ceramics industry, Dr Georg Schlieper highlights a selection of exhibitors for PIM International that are either directly connected with the Powder Injection Moulding industry, or offer technologies that may be of interest to readers.

Advances in Metal and Ceramic Injection Moulding at Euro PM2015

The Euro PM2015 Congress & Exhibition, held in Reims, France, from October 4-7 2015, once again proved to be an essential destination for those looking to understand the latest technical and commercial advances in Powder Injection Moulding. David Whittaker reports for Powder Injection Moulding International on four papers that cover feedstock characterisation, advances in moulding, two-colour MIM and powder injection compression moulding.

PM Titanium 2015: Developments in the Metal Injection Moulding of titanium

Following the two previous conferences in the series held in Australia and New Zealand, PM Titanium 2015, the 3rd Conference on the Powder Processing, Consolidation and Metallurgy of Titanium, moved to the Northern Hemisphere for the first time this year. From the 31st of August to the 3rd of September the historic German city of Lüneburg played host to more than 130 delegates from around the world. As Dr David Whittaker reports for PIM International, researchers are continuing to advance the capabilities and sophistication of the Metal Injection Moulding of titanium.
