MIM Advantage


Compared to other technologies, Metal Injection Molding(MIM) is a complementary method which has progressed substantially over the past 25 years. More and more MIM products applied for a wide range of fields, from ordinary machinery to precise instruments; from the hardware tools to the large-scale machinery; from the electronics industry to the motor manufacturing; from the civilian industry to the military industry; from the general technology to cutting-edge tech. Metal Injection Molding had proved that it offers several advantages over other production technologies.


1. High utilization rate of raw materials. Material properties equivalent to wrought alloys

Commonly used Materials Density(g/cm³) Tensile Strength(MPa) Yield Strength(MPa) Elongation(%) Hardness
Stainless Steel 316L  7.8  510  180  50  120HV
Stainless Steel 17-4PH  7.6 950/1100/1180  660/950/1050  2003/8/8 10/38/42HRC
Stainless Steel 420  7.7  1174  1290  3.5  50HRC

2.Manufacture small size metal parts (0.02-200g) with complicated geometric shapes directly like producing plastic parts.




3.MIM parts have superior mechanical properties to castings and other PM parts, reflecting fine particle size and high sintered density.





4.Surface roughness up to Ra1.2.
5.Steady quality, high efficiency and economic manufacture of high volume complex parts
6.No pollution, clean production process.
