Industrial Affiliate SchemeSelecting the right materials and processes is critical for competitive, profitable products. The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining has an unrivalled knowledge of engineering materials and their processing. The aim of the Institute’s Industrial Affiliate Scheme (IAS) is to bring the benefits of membership to companies as a whole, giving rapid access to the Institute’s information services and assistance with solving materials problems.
Who should join?The Industrial Affiliate Scheme is geared to companies who do not have specific in-house expertise, and need help and advice with their materials problems through a local Materials Adviser. The IAS membership drive was originally focused on small and medium sized companies when the scheme was launched in 1996. This is still the case, but at the same time the IAS has broadened its appeal and now boasts several household names amongst its members, including Nokia and Lotus. Company membership now stands in excess of 200 members. Typical questions
