The metal injection moulding (MIM) process offers the following advantages:

  • Cost-effective manufacture of high volume complex parts
  • Reduced production time compared with investment casting
  • Net-shape manufacture with minimal material waste (runners, sprues recyclable in-house): more significant as materials costs rise
  • Mechanical properties superior to castings and other PM parts reflecting fine particle size and high sintered density
  • Properties equivalent to wrought alloys
  • Wide range of pre-alloys and master alloys available
  • Minimum of finishing operations
