Success stories and continuous improvement in MIM
27-28 October 2021 - Loßburg, Germany
This 2-days Metal Injection Moulding event will represent a good opportunity to understand the great advantages of MIM, but also major sources of error in the process, minimise them, and improve the overall quality of the parts produced.
MIM is gaining market because of the wide range of alloys available with excellent properties, combined with reproducible tolerances, precision, surface roughness and high-quality finish, and a definite advantage in large series where tooling costs are less critical. But improvement needs to continue, and the challenges and opportunities must be tackled and exploited, respectively.
A few selected presentations from important European MIM producers will introduce some successful MIM case studies showing the development in the field, but the rest of the programme will be devoted to interactive sessions on practical problems and solutions, with discussion among participants. The predefined topics of two interactive sessions will be Digitisation and Simulation, and Sustainability. Participants will be welcome to bring other practical questions that will be discussed in the workshop “Campfire Meetings”, profiting from the exchange of views with experienced professionals.
The event is hosted in the headquarters of one of the most important injection moulding press producers in Europe, Arburg GmbH and Co., in Loßburg, Germany, and will include a company visit.
Participation is warmly advised for all engineers wanting to improve their knowledge in the practical side of Powder Injection Moulding, coming from producing companies, end users, and academic research groups, including experts of similar technologies like binder based Additive Manufacturing, for instance. The number of participants is limited to 50*, so early bookings are encouraged.
*subject to further limitation if COVID compliance requires
