There’s just one week left to register for the MIM2022: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, which will take place February 21–23, at the West Palm Beach Marriott, Florida, USA, as well as online for those who cannot attend in person.

Organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), the annual event will showcase the latest innovations in MIM part design, tooling, moulding, debinding and sintering, as well as advancements in metals, alloys, ceramics and hard materials.

This year’s keynote presentation is ‘Medical Device Challenges for MIM and PM Components’ by Gary Jaworek, Senior Principal Engineer Johnson & Johnson, Medical Devices. Jaworek has been involved in new component development for medical devices for the past nineteen years focusing on Metal Injection Moulding as well as other metal and polymer manufacturing processes. He has worked with suppliers from all around world to meet the design requirements for J&J medical devices while striving to advance the technology for powdered metal components. He and his team were involved in two components that were awarded an MPIF design excellence awards for Medical Devices in 2011 and 2015.

Jaworek will share examples of current Johnson & Johnson products while providing information related to design challenges that are occasionally encountered when designing new components for robotic and hand held surgical devices. These challenges include size, geometry, tooling and material processing concerns that need to be overcome. He will also discuss how J&J has improved its speed to market and design processes utilising metal Additive Manufacturing during its process development.

Don’t forget to pick up a free copy of PIM International magazine during the show. The full MIM2022 programme is available via the event website. Registration details are available here.
