The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) is organising a two-day Metal Injection Moulding seminar scheduled to take place October 27–28, 2021. Focusing on “success stories and continuous improvement in MIM,” the event is hosted by Arburg GmbH & Co KG at its headquarters in Lossburg, Germany.

The organisers state that the seminar will represent a good opportunity to understand not only the many advantages of MIM, but also the main sources of error in the process, how to minimise them, and how to improve the overall quality of the parts produced.

MIM is gaining market share because of the wide range of alloys available with excellent properties, combined with reproducible tolerances, precision, surface roughness and high-quality finish, and a definite advantage in large series where tooling costs are less critical. But, the EPMA notes, improvement needs to continue, and the challenges and opportunities must be tackled and exploited, respectively.

Presentations from leading European MIM producers will introduce successful MIM case studies that show the development of the technology, with the rest of the programme devoted to interactive sessions on practical problems and solutions, including discussion among participants.

The predefined topics of two interactive sessions will be Digitisation and Simulation, and Sustainability. Participants will be encouraged to ask practical questions that will be discussed in the workshop Campfire Meetings, benefitting from an exchange of views with experienced MIM professionals.

The seminar will include a visit to Arburg’s production facilities, enabling participants to discover more about the leading European injection moulding machine producer.

Participation is advised for all engineers wanting to improve their knowledge in the practical side of Metal Injection Moulding, including those from part producing companies, end users, and academic research groups. Experts in related technologies such as sinter-based Additive Manufacturing, for instance, are also welcome.

The registration deadline is October 13, with participant numbers limited to fifty.
