Representing one of the advanced metal processing techniques, MIM (Metal Injection Molding) was created by fusing traditional plastic injection molding technology with powder metallurgy. Injection molding using metal dies makes it easy to manufacture otherwise hard to machine parts, including micro, precision, intricately shaped, and 3D parts. MIM is also superbly suited for mass production, as demonstrated by our ability to manufacture at rates ranging from 5,000 to 1 million pieces per month. MIM works best for parts that weigh […]
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a method to produce the complete metal parts by injection molding of feedstock consisted of metal powder and binders, debinding the binders and sintering steps. MIM process has strong advantages rather than machining or casting because MIM does not generate the cutting waste or mold scraps. Moreover, MIM is the net-shape process of high density, three dimensional and complex shape. In our laboratory, we aim to establish the MIM process using various metal powders such as stainless steel, titanium alloy, magnetic material and hard metal, and investigate to improve the various properties of products.
