The EuroMIM was formed out of the successful three year MIM Thematic Network “MIMNet” which finished in October 2000. EuroMIM had its inaugural meeting in January 2001. The group’s objectives are to:
- Develop the potential and capabilities of MIM.
- To promote MIM to end users in particular to promote EuroMIM Group members specialties
- Provide a united European voice to the outside world
Membership and Structure
The EuroMIM Group covers over 60 companies from across Europe and from all parts of the MIM supply chain. The group elects two co-chairs one from industry and one from academia, who lead a small working committee of four or five members. The current co-chairs are Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Petzoldt from IFAM Bremen and Mr Georg Breitenmoser from Parmaco Metal Injection Molding AG.
Activities and Results
The group has been involved in a range of activities and has achieved several successes including the production of the “Introduction to MIM” booklet the production of two Draft EU standards and participation by its members in an annual benchmarking programme.
