mim – metal-injection-moulding
MIM is a molding technology for the production of complex-shaped metal parts by the combined use of injection molding and sintering technology.
- Part weight from 0.01 g (MicroMIM) to app. 100 g
- Materials: steel, stainless steel, special alloys (etc.)
- Quantity: from app. 5,000 pcs.
- Advantages: implementation of complex geometries without machining – cost advantage mainly at higher volumes, high material density, good crystalline structure, good dimensional stability …
