Metal Injection Moulding in China: A growth phenomenon that shows no sign of slowing
The Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industry in Greater China has grown at an astounding rate over the last decade with no signs of a slowdown in demand. Dr Yao-Hung Qiu and Judy Wang explain the story of the region’s manufacturing boom and reveal how the MIM industry has risen to the challenges set by OEMs. From laptops to smartphones and wearable technology, MIM remains a very attractive technology to the designers of the latest must-have 3C devices.
MIM manufacturers lead the way in 2014 MPIF Design Excellence Awards
Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) parts manufacturers shone once again in the Metal Powder Industry Federation’s 2014 PM Design Excellence Awards competition. The winning parts, announced at the PM2014 World Congress in Orlando, stand as excellent examples of what MIM technology is today capable of achieving and a number of parts used in automotive applications reflect the growing recognition of MIM amongst automotive designers and engineers.
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.
PM2014 World Congress: Advances in PIM processing, materials and applications
The PM2014 World Congress and Exhibition, which took place in Orlando, Florida, from May 18-22, lived up to its billing as the must-attend Powder Metallurgy event of the year. A packed technical programme, combined with two additional parallel conferences, resulted in a series of events that attracted a diverse audience to both technical sessions and the combined exhibition hall. Bernard Williams reports for PIM International on developments in PIM materials, processing and applications.
Hansuh MIM Tech: A Metal Injection Moulding pioneer in South Korea
South Korea is today recognised as a major international manufacturing economy and is home to widely respected corporate giants such as Samsung Electronics, LG and Hyundai-Kia. Hansuh MIM Tech Co., Ltd., one of the country’s longest established MIM operations, has witnessed the growth in the demand for MIM technology over a period of nearly 25 years. Dr Georg Schlieper visited the company on behalf of PIM International and reports on the history of the company, changing markets and the challenges for the future.
The Hannover Fair 2014: Global buyers and design engineers learn about the PIM advantage
Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) may produce only a tiny fraction of the total demand for industrial components, but the number of PIM companies, both small and large, exhibiting at the Hannover Fair has been steadily growing. Dr Georg Schlieper visited the exhibition for Powder Injection Moulding International and reports on what MIM and CIM producers had on offer.
