The Metal Powder Industries Federation sponsors an annual Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards competition in which parts fabricators among our member companies are invited to submit components that epitomize the possibilities inherent in this metal-forming technology. A distinguished panel of industry judges evaluates the entries according to a stringent set of criteria and awards Grand Prizes and Awards of Distinction to those parts deemed worthy. The awards are presented each year at a gala luncheon during the annual technical conference, which includes a special video presentation for the winning parts. This is the Introduction and Awards of Distinction portion of the 2018 video. There is a separate video for the Grand Prize winners.
A collection of videos presented at various powder metallurgy conferences over the years, these videos showcase the highest honors in our industry from the Lifetime Achievement Award to the Landmark Award to celebrating the history of MPIF and the International Journal of Powder Metallurgy.
The Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards celebrates Metal Powder Industries Federation member companies' top components and/or innovative functional assemblies in the following categories: Automotive, Aerospace and Military, Lawn and Garden or Off-Highway, Hand Tool and Recreation, Industrial Motors or Controls and Hydraulics, Hardware and Appliances, Medical or Dental, and Electronic or Electrical.
