Indo-MIM: Exploring the dividing line between Metal Injection Moulding and Binder Jetting

There can be few Metal Injection Moulding companies which are not keeping one eye on metal Binder Jetting (BJT). This rapidly progressing Additive Manufacturing process offers the promise of tool-free, high-volume production that can leverage much of an existing MIM producer’s expertise and equipment. Indo-MIM Inc., one of the world’s largest MIM producers, with operations in India and the US, started its exploration of Binder Jetting in 2019.

Here, the company’s Jag Holla shares his insight into what the company has learnt so far, and where he sees the dividing line between MIM and BJT.

In MIM we trust: Integrating optical fingerprinting in Metal Injection Moulded products

Metal Injection Moulding is a technology that, in addition to its industrial application, is widely used for the manufacture of luxury goods, from watch cases to the decorative logos for exclusive handbags. For many such applications, the value of technologies for counterfeit prevention, quality control or identification for recycling purposes is very high.

Erik Dietrich, Applied Research Engineer at Demcon Metal Injection Moulding, Enschede, the Netherlands, reports on an innovative solution developed with Germany’s Tailorlux GmbH that enables the integration of unique optical fingerprint technology into MIM feedstocks.

Powder Injection Molding (PIM), comprising Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM), is an advanced manufacturing technology for the production of precise, high volume, net-shape components.

Whilst many design engineers remain unaware of the potential of this technology, Powder Injection Molding is today a global industry with annual sales in excess of $2 billion and strong growth rates.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Metal Injection Molding. You can also download past issues of PIM International magazine in PDF format from our archive, offering insight into the technology and its applications.
