Metal Injection Molding
Metal injection molding (MIM) is a powder metal process that is characterized by forcing metallic feedstock under pressure into a tool cavity. This process is similar to the injection molding process but uses powder metal feedstock. The resulting ‘green’ part goes through a debind process followed by a sintering process to produce a high strength metal part. The tool cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape. Most MIM parts are made from stainless steel alloys, but other exotic materials such as titanium are available.
Understanding the Benefits
The primary advantage of MIM is the production of intricate parts in stainless steel or other metals that cannot be die cast or cannot easily machined.
