Metal injection molding process usually use in complex,small and high quality metal parts like automotive metal MIM parts,medical components,firearm components,Electrical components etc.
What is key attributes powdered metal injection molding?
MIM is a repeatable process for complex components made from high-temperature alloys.
MIM parts are near fully dense, which gives excellent mechanical, magnetic, corrosion and hermetic sealing properties, and allows secondary operations like plating, heat treating, and machining to be easily performed.
The shrinkage from molded parts to sintered parts is high (14-18%) but isotropic and controllable.
Complex shapes are achieved through tooling techniques used in the plastic injection molding industry. High volumes are attained through multi-cavity tooling.
