Injection molding is sometimes referred to as powder injection molding, which combines technical aspects with the competitive advantages of powder metallurgy for injection molding. Metal injection molding combines strength and metal durability with the inherent flexibility of the injection molding process. Metal injection molding is a highly economical and effective manufacturing method for various components and is a good alternative to processing such as die casting, precision casting and many forms of processing made of other forms of metal. Generally, the ideal component for MIM is small in size and weighs in the range from 0.1 grams to 450 grams. Complex geometries, tight tolerances, high density and excellent repeatability are some of the characteristics that enable metal injection molding. The metal parts to be processed are produced in many industries. compounding is the process of mixing metal powder and binder. Advanced molding technology may result in our MIM raw material house, which allows us to quickly produce high-quality materials and ability in a controlled environment. Our expertise in metal injection molding of composite materials allows us to maintain consistency to eliminate defects in the molding process. We can create custom blends for specific applications. Commonly used MIM components for metals include: low alloy steel, stainless steel, high speed steel, iron rod, cobalt alloy, copper alloy, nickel alloy, tungsten alloy, titanium alloy, eyewear accessories, etc. MIM's injection molding aspect occurs at a relatively low temperature and pressure in conventional injection molding machines. Degreasing is the process of removing the bound additives from the molded parts before sintering. State-of-the-art molding technology has been installed in large-scale, advanced technology automated degreasing facilities in the world. Our degreasing process is constantly monitored and controlled. Sintering is in the later stage of metal injection molding. The binder remaining during the sintering process is removed. The state-of-the-art molding technology has invested in two very large metal injection molding sintering furnaces. Our state-of-the-art sintering capacity is unmatched in the industry. The metal injection molding (MIM) process has the following advantages: Cost-effective manufacturing of large quantities of complex parts; Reduces production time compared to investment casting; Net shape manufacturing uses very little material waste (runner, gate recycable inside): Due to the significant cost increase of materials; is superior to the mechanical properties of powder metallurgy parts such as castings reflecting fine particle size and high sintering density; is equivalent to the properties of forged alloys; pre-alloys and intermediate alloys provide a wide range; very small finishing process.
