Powder Injection Moulding magazine now available as a free digital download

PIM-International-June-2014

Powder Injection Moulding International, the magazine for the Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) industries, is now available for the first time as a free digital download.

Launched in 2007, the quarterly PIM International magazine quickly established itself as the essential publication for those involved in MIM and CIM worldwide thanks to high quality editorial content that ranges from technology developments and application reviews to company profiles, industry news and technical papers.

Nick Williams, Managing Director of Inovar Communications Ltd and Editor of PIM International, stated, “The decision to make PIM International available as a free digital publication will further broaden our readership within the PIM industry, and serve to promote MIM and CIM technology to the end-user communities worldwide.”

“Despite the rapid and ongoing growth in the industry, there remains a serious lack of awareness about the capability of the technology amongst many design engineers. PIM International provides a window into the industry. Since our launch in 2007 our subscription base has grown every year and we will continue to serve subscribers with a high quality print edition of our magazine.”

Powder Injection Moulding (PIM), which encompasses Metal Injection Moulding and Ceramic Injection Moulding is a major manufacturing technology with estimated global sales of more than $1.5 billion. Asia is the world’s largest PIM producing region, followed by Europe and North America. MIM accounts for around 90% of the market for PIM products, which as a whole is seeing annual growth of between 10-20% worldwide.

Many objects we encounter in everyday life including surgical instruments, dental brackets, cars, mobile phones, watches, computers, firearms, domestic appliances, cameras and power tools contain PIM parts, to name just a few markets.

The 80 page June 2014 issue of PIM International (Vol. 8 No. 2), which is now available for download from www.pim-international.com/magazine, includes a profile on one of the world’s largest MIM parts producers, ARCMIM, as well as articles on managing quality in the MIM process chain, innovations in the processing of titanium MIM parts and advances in the production of aluminium MIM.
