Design for Metal Injection Moulding: Ten rules to save time and improve quality

Developing a component for a new manufacturing process can be a daunting prospect. It is in any business’s nature to be cautious of change and to minimise risk; however, any successful business must also recognise when an opportunity is too good to ignore.

It is the latter that has driven such dramatic growth in the global Metal Injection Moulding industry over the last decade. For those who are just at the point of discovering this technology, Matt Bulger reveals the ten key rules for MIM success, as observed in his nearly three decades as a developer and manufacturer of MIM components.

The future of Powder Injection Moulding: Innovations at Arburg’s second PIM conference

Earlier this summer Powder Injection Moulding industry leaders from around the world came together in Lossburg, Germany, for Arburg GmbH + Co KG’s second International PIM conference.

The event, which took place five years after the company’s inaugural PIM conference, had the goal of exploring the future of metal and ceramic injection moulding through two days of presentations by parts manufacturers, materials suppliers, equipment producers and
researchers. Dr Georg Schlieper reports on the event for PIM International.

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.
