Development of MIM metal injection molding process
After years of development, domestic MIM powder still has a large gap compared with oversea. Such as: firstly, small-scale enterprise, less benefits. Secondly, product crossing, mutual demand low prices and keen competition. Thirdly, lag in technology, low-grade products. Fourthly, low level of equipment, difficult to compete with foreign enterprises. All above deficiencies have been improved greatly by investing technology and funds in recent years.
Strength of MIM metallurgy gears
Do you know the strength of MIM metallurgy gears? Different types of gears have different accuracy and density. Sofine metal parts manufacturers will tell you the mystery of MIM gears!
Introduction of metal injection molding process
Metal injection molding MIM is a component manufacturing technology.Also known as sintered products,This technique maximizes the solid particle content and completely removes the binder in the subsequent degreasing sintering process, thereby densifying the forming blank.This powder metallurgy process is known as metal powder injection molding.
MIM technology features:Complex parts with final shape and size can be directly prepared.For example, asymmetrical parts, parts with grooves, transverse holes, blind holes, parts with large changes in wall thickness, parts with surface patterns and text, etc.The product performance is superior, because the MIM product microstructure is uniform, there is no thick crystal structure and component segregation in the casting process, the product density is high, the product strength, hardness, derivative rate and other mechanical properties are high, the wear resistance is good, the structure is uniform, it is obviously better than precision casting
Development of Metal Injection Moulding Process for Medical Applications
To counter the problems associated with the conventional processes of producing implants, a new approach has been invented, which is the adaptation of the injection moulding process for manufacturing the fracture fixation plates. With this technique in place, we have now taken a step in the right direction towards rapid manufacturing of fracture fixation plates, for the first time. The fracture fixation plates produced using this technique comply with the international standards including MPIF Standard 35, ISO 5832-1 and ISO 10933. The advantages of the present invention are design flexibility, rapid manufacturing, cost effectiveness and minimal waste compared to conventional process
MIM Parts for Industrial and Tools
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology combines the advantage of both powder metallurgy and plastic injection technology. It breaks the shape limit of conventional PM compression molding, while absorbs the capability of forming complex shape and realizing mass production with high efficiency of plastic injection technology. As a near net shape technology for high-quality precision components, MIM has the advantages which conventional powder metallurgy, precision machining and casting methods would not have. Here shows these advantages as following:
*Capable of production complex shape small metal parts as plastic injection process. MIM part’s typical weigh is 0.1-200g;
Metal Powder Injection Molding: A Vibrant Global Industry
Powder injection molding, including metal powder injection molding and ceramic injection molding, is a major manufacturing technology with an estimated annual sales of more than $2 billion and is growing.
The production of metal powder injection molded parts accounts for about 90% of the total market of PIM products, and the global annual growth rate is still between 10-20%. Ceramic injection molded parts occupy a balance with tungsten carbide.
