Metal Injection Molding Conference Call for Presentations Announced

All abstracts accepted for presentation will require a PowerPoint submission prior to the conference.

An official call for presentations has been announced for MIM2020, International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, to be held at Hotel Irvine, March 2-4, 2020, in Irvine, California. Potential authors have until October 4, 2019, to submit presentation abstracts on manufacturing innovations and material advancements. All abstracts accepted for presentation will require a PowerPoint submission prior to the conference.


Innovation is responsible for the rapid growth of the powder injection molding industry (metal injection molding, ceramic injection molding, and cemented carbide injection molding), a nearly $2 billion advanced manufacturing industry. Sponsored by the Metal Injection Molding Association, a trade association of Metal Powder Industries Federation and its affiliate APMI International, MIM2020 brings together product designers, engineers, end users, manufacturers, researchers, educators, and students for technology transfer.

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

Superior positioning and geometric performance, absolute high-resolution encoders, and a large, ⌀260mm clear aperture makes this air bearing stage a precision instrument for optical alignment, metrology, inspection, calibration, and scanning. Features and advantages include ⌀260mm clear aperture, 77kg load capacity, 0.0015µrad resolution (max.), 500 RPM (max.), flatness/eccentricity of <175/300nm, wobble of < 1 µrad, and direct drive motor. Air-bearings have no rolling or sliding elements and deliver frictionless, non-contact motion, resulting in negligible reversal error, better flatness, and minimal wobble and eccentricity. All these are ideal prerequisites for applications such as inspection and metrology, calibration, and scanning of high-end parts (i.e., infrared and precision optics, turbine blades, shafts and bearings) in industries like aerospace, aircraft, automotive, semiconductors, and photonics.
