MIM and AM: Solvent finishing of complex parts


As the pressure to produce smaller and more complex parts faster and more economically increases, manufacturing using MIM (metal injection molding) and AM (additive manufacturing) processes such as 3D printing is gaining widespread acceptance. Manufacturing options like MIM and AM have opened up design possibilities that are almost limitless, allowing designers to create parts that would otherwise be impossible to make using other manufacturing methods. For example, in the past, design compromises had to be made for parts that were […]

MIM – Advanced technology that brings the future of metalworking to the present


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 […]

What is Metal Injection Molding?


What is Metal Injection Molding? Metal Injection Molding, also called MIM, is a low cost, high volume manufacturing process that produces custom metal parts near to net shape. It combines the way injection molded plastics are formed with powdered metal sintering to create metal or ceramic parts which are stronger, denser and more capable of complex geometric shapes than most forged or die cast metal parts. Metal Injection Molding, also called MIM, is a low cost, high volume manufacturing process […]
