The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced the conference programme for MIM2024: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics, and Carbides. The event is planned for February 26-28, 2024, at the Hilton Raleigh North Hills in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

The first day of the event will begin with an optional Powder Injection Moulding tutorial from Matthew Bulger, ATPM Consulting, Former MIMA President. The tutorial is intended to act as a comprehensive foundation to PIM technology and cover topics such as: an introduction to the manufacturing process, a definition of what constitutes a viable component, materials selection, assessments of critical accuracy and performance features, a comparison of PIM to other technologies, and new applications.
