Metal Injection Molding: A revolution in precision component production

MIM-Apple-Lightning-connect
Metal Injection Molding is used to produce key parts of Apple’s Lightning connector system. Components for such applications have been produced in the tens of millions per week. Few other technologies can compete with MIM’s combination of extreme high volume capability and tight tolerances. This is just one of many examples of how MIM has revolutionised manufacturing in the 3C sector.

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

You can find the products of this industry, with global sales in excess of $2 billion a year, applied in all areas of life, from medical devices, to automotive and aero engines, watches, power tools, orthodontics and consumer electronics.

Introduction to Metal Injection Molding:
Process, Materials & Applications

In our Introduction to Metal Injection Moulding you will discover more about the process steps for metal and ceramic injection molding.

We also look at a range of materials that can be processed, basic properties and some applications for the technology.

Metal Injection Molding:
A guide to the technology for end-users and designers

If you are considering Metal Injection Molding (MIM) or Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) for the production of your components, take a look at our extensive design guide for end-users.

Essential information is provided on what an end-user needs to consider when looking to use the Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) route for the production of components.
