Each year, the Metal Powder Industries Federation holds a design competition among its parts producers. The technologies used to produce these parts includes conventional powder metallurgy, metal injection molding, and metal additive manufacturing.

The end-use markets include automotive, aerospace, lawn and garden, industrial tools, appliances, power generation, energy exploration, firearms, sporting goods, medical, hand tools, household applications, defense and many other applications.

These parts are judged by industry experts and are announced at MPIF's PowderMet conference held every year. To learn more about PM visit PickPM.com.
