Metal Injection Molding
Metal injection moldingMetal Injection Moulding (MIM) combines the advantages of the large degree of design freedom that comes with plastic injection moulding with the excellent mechanical and thermal characteristics of metallic materials. Now a well matured and trusted process it is capable of producing high-precision metal components for a wide variety of industries including electronics, mobile phones, medical and scientific equipment. A good range of metals is available.Components produced using the Metal Injection Moulding process are free of residue and attain density values of almost 100%. They have similar characteristics to machined components. The MIM process is environmentally-friendly and does not waste resources as the granulates are recycled. Because multi impression moulds can be used it is an ideal way of producing large volumes of low cost, small, complex geometry, precision parts such as SIM card holders, small gears and spectacle hinges.
