The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced a call for presentations for MIM2022: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, which will be held at the West Palm Beach Marriott, West Palm Beach, Florida, USA, February 21–23, 2022.
The conference, sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association, a trade association of the MPIF and its affiliate APMI International, aims to gather product designers, engineers, end-users, manufacturers, researchers, educators, and students for technology transfer both within the industry and without, extending into adjacent technologies such as AM.
Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) is an advanced manufacturing technology for the production of complex, high-volume net-shape components. The technology shares many similarities with sinter-based Additive Manufacturing processes such as Binder Jetting, often using the same metal powders and sharing the same binder removal and sintering stages. As well as anticipated overlaps in end-user markets, there is also a clear trend in MIM companies leading the adoption of sinter-based AM technologies.
As a result of these similarities, the annual MIM conference has become a popular destination for companies researching or developing sinter-based AM technologies, as well as companies already established in this field.
Authors wishing to present a paper on manufacturing innovations and material advancements at MIM2022 should submit an abstract using the submission form, which can be downloaded via the conference website. All accepted abstracts will require a PowerPoint presentation to be submitted for review prior to the conference.
Presentations are invited on the following topics:
- Part design
- Metals & alloys
The deadline for presentation submissions is September 28, 2021. Further details are available through the conference website.
