Kalashnikov signals further expansion of Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) technology usage following acquisition of Sintez
In Spring 2014 it was announced that that firearm producer Kalashnikov Concern, part of the Russian state corporation Rostec, was to purchase 51% of the shares in Russian Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) parts producer Sintez (Synthesis-PD).
Kalashnikov has recently re-stated its commitment to adopt MIM technology as part of a major capacity expansion and efficiency drive.
Sintez is an established Russian MIM components producer that has the advantage of also manufacturing its own carbonyl iron powders... Click for more

Powder Injection Molding (PIM), which encompasses Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM), is a net-shape process for the manufacturing of high volume high precision components for use in a diverse range of industries. Click here to learn more about the process.
Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) is just one of a number of innovative technologies now available for the production of complex metal components.
Whilst MIM itself is considered to be a disruptive technology to processes such as machining and investment casting, Liquidmetal is also expected to compete with these conventional technologies as well as with MIM.
Paul Hauck recently joined Liquidmetal Technologies following a career of more than 27 years in Metal Injection Moulding and in the September 2014 issue of PIM International he introduces Liquidmetal technology and highlights both the differences and similarities in the two processes.
As of June 2014 PIM International is available as a FREE digital publication as well as via a print subscription.
This change will significantly broaden the publication’s readership and help to promote Metal and Ceramic Injection Moulding technology to a wide end-user community.

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.
