Metal injection molding (MIM), a type of molding technoloty integrating with the advantages of both the plastic injection molding and the coventional powder metallurgy, has been developed into an important part of powder metallurgy at a steady growing pace.
This process mixes the superfine metal powder with polymer binders, and produces the liquid injection materials after heating, then processed in the injection molding. The formed product is then degreased and sintered (densification) into the finished product.
MIM procedure can be used to produce a large number of precise complex 3D small parts with automatic production. It greatly reduces the complexity of traditional metal processing procedures and costs, therefore becoming popular due to its distinct.
MCT also provides MIM (Metal Injection Molding) mold tooling and molding.
MIM is widely used in mobile communication accessories, automotive, electric tool, medical and commodity with material range as low alloy steel, stainless steel, such as Fe-2Ni, Fe-8Ni, 316L, 17-4PH and so on.
