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 Parts 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

Mainly used materials of MIM

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


 Different advantages of three metal parts manufactuting tech


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



 Factors of cost changes for different tech


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.
