Processing adds value

The MIM method combines two already known manufacturing processes. One is the plastic injection moulding and the other one the sintering of metal powder compacts. Metal injection moulding brings both together.

The feedstock, a mixture of fine metal powder and plastic granules, represents the raw material. This can be processed by conventional injection moulding machines to form parts. Then the plastics, which is required for shaping will remove via the debinding process.

The sintering process finally gives the components their final mechanical properties. A further processing is usually not necessary. However, various post-processing processes can be applied for finishing the parts.
