How does MIM compare to other processes?
Die Casting: Metal Injection Molding (MIM) can handle higher-temperature alloys than die casting, since the MIM alloys are never melted – the polymer binder allows the powder to make the desired shape in a die at temperatures similar to plastic injection molding. This also results in very long tool life, with cavity lifetimes of over 250,000 shots without needing substantial rework.[……]
