Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)


The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) is a “not-for-profit association” formed by the PM industry to advance the interests of the metal powder producing and consuming industries.

As its name states, it is a federation of trade associations—six in all—that are concerned with all aspects of powder metallurgy, metal powders, metal injection molding, processing equipment & tooling, and particulate materials.

Throughout its long and distinguished history, MPIF has been a stalwart champion of this innovative technology, providing its member companies with a long list of services that help advance the art and science of PM while promoting its benefits to prospective end users. Chief among these benefits are the contributions PM makes to sustainable manufacturing, advantages that have made PM a recognized green technology. These advantages are highlighted in the video "The Sustainability Continuum" you can click on to view below.

Annual activities include a technical conference and trade exhibit, professional development of topical information and industry standards and online directories and search engine.
