Metal Injection Molding: PIM Internatioal, the industry magazine
MIM in the firearms industry
The firearms industry is a major consumer of Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) parts, accounting for significant levels of production not only in North America but also Europe and Asia.
As an industry that encompasses both civilian, law enforcement and military markets it is a sector that is subject not only to consumer trends, but to national and international political events.
A new 17 page report published in the December 2014 issue of PIM International magazine reviews trends in the use of MIM components in firearms, looks at regional variations and considers opportunities for the future.
Whilst most attention has traditionally been given to the use of MIM in the North American firearms industry, as this report shows the use of MIM technology in this sector is truly global... Read full story
LÖMI, a market leader in solvent debinding furnaces for the PIM industry based in Aschaffenburg, Germany, has recently delivered a large order of CIM solvent debinding furnaces to one of its renowned regular customers in the watchmaking industry.
The customer, reacting to ongoing technological advances in the PIM industry, changed all of its previous debinding technology to organic solvent debinding technology in 2011. Since then, it has placed orders for increasing numbers of CIM debinding furnaces with LÖMI...read full story

If you are considering MIM or CIM for the production of your components, take a look at our guidelines that end-users need to consider when looking to use the powder injection moulding (PIM) route for the production of components.
As this free-to-access online feature clearly demonstrates, the greater the understanding of the MIM process that a designer has, the greater the chances of successful adoption of MIM technology.
