Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is widely used to produce medical devices, aerospace and defense components, automotive parts, consumer products and electronics. It is a versatile and cost-effective manufacturing process that can produce small, complex metal parts with high precision and consistency.
In the Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process, metal powder is mixed with a binder to create a homogeneous feedstock. The feedstock is then molded into the desired shape using an injection molding machine. After molding, the part undergoes a rebinding process to remove the binder material and is then sintered to create a fully dense metal part.

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is used in various industries, including medical and dental, watch and jewelry, firearms, and aerospace. In the medical and dental industries, MIM is used to produce surgical instruments, dental implants, and other medical devices. In the watch and jewelry industries, MIM is used to produce small gears and components with intricate designs. In the firearms industry, MIM is used to produce small, complex parts with high precision and consistency. In the aerospace industry, MIM is used to produce small, high-strength components for turbine blades, fuel nozzles, and sensor housings.
MIM is a highly efficient process that can reduce production costs by up to 50% compared to traditional machining methods.
MIM can produce small, complex metal parts with high accuracy and consistency.
MIM allows for the production of complex geometries and shapes that are difficult to achieve with other manufacturing methods.
MIM can be used with a variety of metal alloys, including stainless steel, titanium, and tungsten.
MIM generates less waste compared to traditional machining methods, making it a more sustainable option.
Reduced Secondary Operations
MIM can produce finished parts with little to no additional machining or finishing required, reducing the need for secondary operations.
