Since its advent in the 1970s, Metal Injection Molding technology has successfully taken a significant market share from conventional manufacturing technologies – such as PM, investment casting, die casting, stamping and machining – in the production of small metal parts. MIM’s shrinkage ratio of mo[……]
Micro MIM has succeeded in the mass production of a micro nozzle with a hole diameter of 0.03 mm (30 μm) and an aspect ratio of 5 using Metal Injection Molding process.
Using conventional technology, i.e. machining, it is currently not possible to produce a hole with a diameter smaller than 0.05[……]
If the dimensional tolerances and/or the mechanical properties obtained after the sintering (or heat treatment) of the MIM parts are unsatisfactory, a sizing or coining operation can be carried out.
The sizing operation, which is carried out at moderate compacting pressures, serves to improve the[……]
The Metal Injection Molding process is a net shape process that forms and sinters metal powder to create high strength components. It is a cost effective process when components are in need of high strength and wear characteristics that other processes are not able to achieve.
When selecting a manufacturing process, MIM is most often compared to other technologies such as investment casting, machining or conventional PM. In compare to the other MIM offers the following advantages: MIM has greater ability to provide harder materials, is more cost effective, allows for thin[……]
Micro MIM (μ-MIM) is an advanced method of metal injection molding, using sub-μm-sized metal powders and very fine molds to produce extremely small three-dimensional structures with very high resolution, sharp edges, and outstanding aspect ratios while the cheap and well-established method of inject[……]
Micro gear is often used in small gear box, robot toys, mobile phone lift camera, and so on. MIM is replacing traditional processes such as hobbing and powder metallurgy to manufacture the micro gear.
Metal injection molding (MIM) is a metalworking process by which finely-powdered metal is mixed[……]
Metal injection molding is net a shape forming technology and that is the primary advantage it has. Compared with the traditional metallurgy techniques, MIM parts can be as complex, in terms as shape, as anything that can be done in plastic injection molding but achieve material properties equivalen[……]
Metal injection molding process produces high-quality finished metal parts for door lock by molding metal alloy powder as if it were plastic. MIM combines two proven processes: plastic injection molding and powder metallurgy. The process molds metal alloy as if it were plastic.
The MIM process is[……]
Metal injection molding (MIM) is a hybrid technology that integrates the shaping capability of plastic injection molding and the materials flexibility of conventional powder metallurgy. MIM is preferred for mass manufacturing of small, intricate-geometry components of a variety of materials as it ca[……]
