Compared with other industries, automotive industry is always in a state of constant flux from a component design perspective. The move towards lower displacement engines means that engine components must be smaller and more durable in almost every application inside the engine. MIM is very adept at meeting these size requirements due to its ability to incorporate a high degree of design complexity into very limited real estate on small components. Additionally, constantly pushing materials development is critical. Automotive engine component producers will continue to see an increase in the temperature performance requirements of their parts. Lower displacement engines will require superior component performance at higher temperatures in order to maintain horse-power. All this leads to demands to MIM components manufacturers like FineMIM of superior materials and smaller components, both of which are the focus areas of our company.
