Metal injection molding, ceramic injection molding and cemented carbide injection molding have estimated sales of nearly $1.5 billion and could possibly double in a span of five years. With this continued growth and interest, the industry has realized major technological advances and overcome numerous business challenges. The objective of the conference is to explore these advances, assist in the transfer of technology, and investigate new developments in the field of injection molding of metals, ceramics, and carbides. The conference is targeted at product designers, engineers, consumers, manufacturers, researchers, educators, and students. All individuals with an interest in the application of powder injection molding will be encouraged to attend.
