The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has reported that a Powder Metallurgy Industry Day took place at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA)’s North American Headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA, on February 14, 2019. PM parts makers and powder producing member companies of the MPIF were invited to the event, coordinated by FCA and MPIF, to showcase PM technology to FCA’s in-house design and engineering teams.

In total, some thirty-five PM parts and powder producers, representing such technologies as conventional PM, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), and metal Additive Manufacturing (AM), exhibited their products and showcased their capabilities. Thousands of parts were available to the 800+ FCA employees who attended, representing various departments such as powertrain, chassis, body, electronics, controls, engineering systems, sensors, computer-aided engineering, materials, chemistry, safety, quality, MOPAR, and more.

The event was said to be well received and truly an educational experience for the FCA employees who attended. Event attendees were excited to learn more about the PM industry, and some stated that they were previously unaware of the value and innovation available from PM technologies. Attendees were able to ask questions of PM experts and had a chance to see and touch parts that they had not seen before.
