Metal Injection Mouldings

Metal Injection of Parts with Complex Shapes

MIM technology makes it possible to produce parts with complex shapes using the same principle as plastic injection at the design level. To do this, we inject a mixture composed of a metal material with a plastic binder. We then perform a debinding operation that removes the plastic material from the part. Lastly, we restore the material’s mechanical properties during the sintering operation.

Competes with machining

  • Small parts with complex shapes
  • Reduced production costs for small parts that are difficult to machine

Machining ally

  • Drafting in MIM + Machining of the part to observe very tight tolerances
  • Reduced production costs for small parts that are difficult to machine
