• Metal Injection Moulding

    Metal Injection Moulding

    Metal Injection Moulding – MIM – offers the strength of metal with the geometric possibilities of plastic. An MIM component can replace a plastic component, or possibly 2-4 metal subcomponents made using other metalworking processes.

MIM - Metal Injection Moulding

Metal Injection Moulding – MIM – combines the material properties of powder metallurgy with the design possibilities of plastic injection moulding. In a nutshell – it allows you to get a plastic component made of metal!

The process offers amazing design possibilities and freedom previously unseen for metal components. Feel free to read on, but the opportunities are best illustrated by holding a component in your hand – so call and arrange a meeting with us.

Our dedicated employees think outside the box and create value using MIM technology.

MIM guidelines and design rules

MIM guidelines and design rules

Basic guidelines can help in the evaluation of whether a component is suited to the MIM process, and assist in the initial analysis phase regarding tool design and injection moulding.

MIM versus PM

MIM versus PM

The question of when MIM represents a viable option compared to the traditional powder metal technology is a complex one, but there are a number of factors that can be taken into account.

Technical data

Technical data

MIM components can be manufactured in all types of steel: low alloy, soft magnetic, stainless steel and special materials such as tool steel.

At Sintex we are specialists in MIM in stainless steel materials and tool steel. Testing is carried out, however, on a number of materials, and you are therefore always welcome to contact our specialists in the area.
