Applicable materials and application fields of metal injection molding
MIM (metal injection molding) is the abbreviation of metal injection molding. It is a forming method of injecting the plasticized mixture of metal powder and its binder into the model. Firstly, the selected powder is mixed with the binder, then the mixture is granulated, and then the shape required by injection molding is formed.
MIM is widely used, including daily necessities, such as automobiles, aerospace industry, military industry, mobile phones, watches, medical treatment, household appliances, cameras and power tools equipped with MIM parts. MIM technology can be applied to any material that can be made into powder. At present, MIM material systems mainly include:
Stainless steel, iron-based alloy, magnetic material, tungsten alloy, cemented carbide, fine ceramics and other series.
