MIM in the firearms industry

Report gives a global view of Metal Injection Moulding 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 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



Success for LÖMI debinding technology in the watchmaking industry

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 LÖ full story
