METAL INJECTION MOLDING
The MIM process (Metal Injection Molding) is a process by which finely powdered metal alloys and ceramics are mixed with a binder material forming an injectable liquid. It is then injected into a mold allowing for complex shapes in high volume. The binder is removed and the part is sintered.
This process is growing in popularity for a wide variety of industry applications. The PIM Process combines injection molding technology with powder metallurgy and ceramic sintering processes to achieve near-net shape high volume production of complex mechanical components.
Utilizing industry standard materials to custom development of application specific alloys, we have the material solution for your demanding design requirements. Our materials scientists coupled with in-house custom alloy development allows for solutions beyond typical component suppliers.
Part Selection - Small mechanical components with complex geometry are ideal candidates for MIM. High volume applications maximize the cost saving benefits inherent with injection molding, giving design engineers a powerful tool to reduce cost on difficult to machine parts.
