Metal Injection Moulding in Asia: A story of continuing success for the world’s largest MIM region

The MIM industry in Asia is the world’s largest, whether considered in terms of number of parts produced, sales turnover or production volume. China alone is reported to offer half of the world’s installed MIM capacity, with production predominantly focused on 3C applications.

In this report, Dr Paul A Davies, Sandvik Osprey Ltd, provides an overview of the evolution of the region’s MIM industry from a powder producer’s perspective. With selected application examples and data from the recent APMA 2017 conference, the report offers insights into the drivers for growth and how these have stimulated continued investment in capacity.

Prototyping for Metal Injection Moulding: 3DEO’s AM solution matches the density and chemistry of MIM parts

The nature of Metal Injection Moulding technology means that creating functional prototypes that match the density and chemistry of the final parts can be both expensive and time consuming, whilst machined or AM alternatives simply do not allow for a realistic assessment of how a component will function.

In the following article 3DEO’s Matt Sand presents a new service that promises to deliver prototype and low to medium volume runs of components that match the performance of MIM parts.
