Threat or opportunity? The MIM industry as a partner, a target and a market for metal AM

In September, HP announced its entry into the world of metal Additive Manufacturing with the launch of a new binder-based AM system, the HP Metal Jet. The fact that HP’s launch partners, Parmatech and GKN Powder Metallurgy, are well-known MIM producers serves to highlight just how close the worlds of AM and MIM have become; a fact evidenced by multiple launches and developments over the past few years.

In this report, PIM International’s Nick Williams reviews the attraction of AM for MIM producers, and the equally strong attraction of MIM for AM machine builders.

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.
