What is Metal Injection Molding?
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a modern technology and is often mistakenly compared with press and sinter powder metallurgy or die casting. MIM is a unique and superior process in many ways -- offering lower production costs, greater design freedom, higher tolerances, and ultimate flexibility and reliability.
In fact, tolerances of +/-.002" are commonplace. For one particular customer, Injectamax has produced over 15 million parts with a tolerance of +.0005"/-.0007"
Metal Injection Molding technology produces the highest quality finished metal components by molding metal alloy powder as if it were plastic. High-precision components are molded, often faster and at significant cost savings when compared to alternate methods.
Injectamax has successfully produced sophisticated and/or high volume components such as:
- Medical Tools and Devices
- Orthodontic Brackets and Bodies
- Aerospace & Defense Hardware
- Small Arms Weapon Parts
- Electric Motors
- Electronic Packaging
- Consumer Products
- Telecommunication Hardware
