A study in the use of optical metrology to analyse the effectiveness of post-processing operations in MIM

For many MIM components, one or more post-processing operations may be required in order to achieve specific properties for an application. Such operations may be aimed at improving surface finish, increasing final density, or achieving a specific hardness. In the following study Swiss MIM specialist Parmaco Metal Injection Molding AG and Austrian optical metrology specialist Alicona Imaging GmbH investigate the potential of optical metrology to analyse the effectiveness and impact of selected post-processing operations.
