Why Choose Metal Injection Molding?

Metal Injection Molding process provides the ability to design unique metal products without the cost restrictions that would be found with conventional metal forming techniques. The MIM process combines the design flexibility of plastic injection molding with the strength and integrity of wrought metals to offer cost effective solutionns for highly complex part geometries. Many industries now rely on the unique advantages of metal injection molding to help them keep ahead in a highly competitive world.

  • MIM offers manufacturing capabilities for producing net shape, complex, metal parts in large quantities
  • MIM gives manufacturers an alternative method of producing parts that can be less expensive than machining or casting
  • MIM can produce geometries that can eliminate secondary operations
  • MIM offers superior density, corrosion performance, strength, and ductility
  • MIM can combine two or more powered metal (PM) components into one; reducing part count
  • MIM designs save material and weight
  • MIM can produce better surface finish
  • MIM can produce thinner wall sections and sharper cutting points
  • MIM greatly reduces requirements for finish machining
  • MIM produces high volumes of small components at a lower cost and faster lead times
  • MIM has mechanical properties superior to castings and other PM parts reflecting fine particle size and high sintered density
  • MIM has a wide range of pre-alloys and master alloys available
  • 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
