Metal Injection Moulding in the firearms industry: A global perspective

The firearms industry is a major consumer of Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) parts, accounting for significant levels of production not only in North America, but also Europe and Asia. As an industry that encompasses both civilian, law enforcement and military markets it is a sector that is subject not only to consumer trends, but to national and international political events. In this article Nick Williams, Editor of PIM International, reviews trends in the use of MIM components in firearms, looks at regional variations and considers opportunities for the future.

In this article Dr Satya Banerjee, DSH Technologies, shares some of his extensive experience as a MIM industry consultant.
