The worldwide Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has published A Collection of Powder Characterization Standards for Metal Additive Manufacturing. A compilation of nine existing test methods relating to metallic powdered feedstock, the document is intended to help “clarify the technology as an aid in conducting business” for designers and manufacturers.

Championing powder metallurgy for over 50 years

Closing - Days - WWII - MPIF - Profit

Founded in 1944, in the closing days of WWII, the MPIF is a not for profit organization headquartered in Princeton, NJ. Presently, the federation is formed by the aligning interests of six trade associations including the Metal Injection Molding Association, Refractory Metals Association, and the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing, whose members include HP, LPW, GE Additive, ExOne, and Desktop Metal.

Overall, the MPIF exists to serve this interests of these industries, helping to keep the workforce informed through a range of resources, events and training.

Powder - Metallurgy - Short - Course - Module

It’s Basic Powder Metallurgy Short Course, including a module on additive manufacturing, is tipped to be “the powder metallurgy industry’s longest running course” and has been active for over 50 years.

The MPIF’s recently published collection contains standards relating to the preparation of powder samples, material purity, flow characterization, particle size, and powder packing. MPIF Standard 02, for example,...
