Liquidmetal and Metal Injection Moulding: Two complementary metal forming technologies

Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) is just one of a number of innovative technologies now available for the production of complex metal components. Whilst MIM itself is considered to be a disruptive technology to processes such as machining and investment casting, Liquidmetal is also expected to compete with these conventional technologies as well as with MIM. Paul Hauck recently joined Liquidmetal Technologies following a career of more than 27 years in MIM. In this article he introduces Liquidmetal technology and highlights both the differences and similarities in the two processes.
