BASF, manufacturer of the Catamold® feedstock system for Metal Injection Molding (MIM), is hosting a webinar focused on the application of MIM for complex steel automotive components.
The webinar, entitled “Metal Injection Molding: Catamold® A Proven Technology for Complex Steel Automotive Components”, takes place on Thursday, October 6, 2011 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT.
Primary areas to be covered include:
- Technical knowledge about Metal Injection Molding, component design rules and comparisons to traditional metal fabrication methods
- Case studies and examples of how metal injection molding is meeting the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s automotive design trends.
- Advantages provided by MIM for complex automotive components
MIM enables the economic production of complex, net-shape steel components in high volumes allowing engineers to think outside the box and imagine new innovative designs for automotive components. Available in a wide range of alloys, MIM’s high final density and homogeneous microstructure yields mechanical properties exceeding investment casting.
The design freedom and cost effectiveness coupled with current engine down sizing and boosting trends are expanding applications for MIM.
Embraced by automotive designers in Europe, Catamold® is a proven technology which is gaining wider acceptance in North America.
