Metal Injection Molding

METAL INJECTION MOLDING (MIM)

MIM is the process which merges two established technologies, plastic injection molding and powdered metallurgy. It has been around for over 45 years. In that time, however, little changed. Until, that is, we developed a brand new MIM platform. We call it MIM 2.0 and it has dramatically increased productivity while reducing variation and costs.

MIM OVERVIEW

If you have small, complex part that requires tight tolerances and higher wear, MIM may be the solution to your needs.

MIM DESCRIPTION

MIM materials have had their chemistries modified in order to withstand the complex metal injection molding process.

THE MIM PROCESS

Our proprietary multi-slide process results in faster cycle times, reduced variation, tighter tolerances and decreased defects.

MIM TOOLING

Whether it’s standard tooling or multi-slide, our goal is always to eliminate machining and reduce costs, with the priority being net shape first time.

HEAT TREATING

MIM materials may be heat treated to increase strength, hardness, and wear resistance in your final part.

CALIBRATION

Calibration occurs post sintering and includes: coining, sizing and straightening and addresses sag and drag which can occur during sintering.
