Medical equipment manufacturer Praxis Technology, headquartered in Queensbury, New York, USA, has released a new eBook titled ‘Why the Medical Industry Needs Titanium Metal Injection Molding (TiMIM)’.
The eBook focuses on the benefits of using titanium Metal Injection Moulding for medical applications and presents an alternative to Additive Manufacturing for the medical industry. The company explains that while MIM techniques are widely used in the medical device industry, there are distinct advantages when using medical-grade titanium alloys.
The titanium metal injection moulding (TiMIM) process produces pore-free parts that reportedly provide better corrosion resistance and biocompatibility than stainless steel alloys. Titanium is also said to be significantly more efficient when used in ultrasonic applications.
Praxis Technology’s new ebook includes the following topics:
- The economic drivers of using TiMIM for medical devices
- The design flexibility of TiMIM
- Why TiMIM is a real alternative to Additive Manufacturing
- Information on titanium alloys, Powder Metallurgy & TiMIM
