What Industries are Using Metal Injection Molding (MIM)

Many industries make use of metal injection molding parts, including.

  • The automotive industry uses MIM parts for various components, such as airbag sensors and fuel injectors.
  • The aerospace industry also relies on MIM for parts such as engine valves and turbine blades.
  • In the medical field, MIM is used to create implants and prosthetic devices.

Examples of Metal Injection Molding (MIM)

MIM is applicable for parts that require tight tolerances or intricate shapes, used with various metals, including stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, and cobalt chrome.

Some examples of parts that are made with MIM include:

  • Golf club heads
  • Engine valves
  • Dental implants
  • Surgical instruments
  • Firearms components

While MIM parts are typically more expensive than those made with other methods, such as die casting or machining, the benefits often outweigh the costs. MIM parts are strong, lightweight, and made to endure very tight tolerances. MIM offers a wide range of design possibilities, making it ideal for complex parts.

What materials are available for Metal Injection Molding?

PSM polyalloys can be used for metal injection molding, including stainless steel, superalloys, magnetic alloys, controlled expansion alloys, electrical materials, tool steels, and heavy alloys. Each material has unique properties that make it well-suited for specific applications.

  • Stainless steel is often applicable in food processing or medical applications due to its corrosion resistance.
  • Superalloys are frequently used in high-temperature or high-stress environments because of their ability to withstand extreme conditions.
  • Magnetic alloys are often used in electronic applications because of their electromagnetic properties.
  • Controlled expansion alloys are often used in optical and electronic applications because they can be precisely tuned to expand at a specific rate.
  • Electrical materials are used in electrical and electronic applications because of their conductivity.
  • Tool steels are often used in cutting or forming applications because of their hardness and wear resistance.
  • Heavy alloys are applicable in structural applications because of their strength and durability.
