The conference programme has now been published for the MIM2011 International Conference on the Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics & Carbides, March 14-16 2011.
MIM2011 will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Disney, Orlando, USA and the focus of the technical program is “Manufacturing Best Practices”. The event is to be co-chaired by Animesh Bose, Materials Processing, Inc., and Bruce Dionne, Megamet Solid Metals Inc.
The conference is sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA), a trade association of the MPIF and its affiliate APMI International. The objective of the event is to explore the latest advances in MIM, assist in the transfer of technology, and investigate new developments in the field of injection moulding of metal, ceramics, and carbides.
The conference is targeted at product designers, engineers, consumers, manufacturers, researchers, teachers and students. All individuals with an interest in this fascinating technology and application of its parts are encouraged to attend.
Immediately prior to the conference, on Monday, March 14, a one day PIM tutorial will be conducted by Prof. Randall M. German, San Diego State University. This intensive course will provide a basis for determining options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective PIM manufacturing. Individuals who will benefit from the tutorial include engineers, business managers, procurement managers, component designers and technicians.
“This course is a must for consumers of PIM components and organisations that are exploring the opportunities associated with developing their own PIM manufacturing facilities”, state the organisers. Full programme information is available from the MPIF website.
