Smith Metal Products, Center City, Minnesota, USA, has added titanium Metal Injection Moulding (TiMIM) capabilities to its portfolio of materials for Metal Injection Moulding. The company’s existing materials portfolio includes stainless steels and ceramics.

TiMIM enables the production of complex titanium parts in a single operation and in higher volumes than allowed by traditional machined titanium components.

By adding TiMIM capabilities, Smith Metal Products states that it has opened up a new, wider range of component applications for the company, particularly for strength-to-weight ratio parts. TiMIM part features include undercuts and varying wall thicknesses up to 3mm (.125”). They also accept many surface finishes including anodising and electropolishing and can be finish machined if necessary.

“We are excited to have taken delivery of dedicated titanium Metal Injection Molding equipment,” stated Todd Jensen, General Manager of Smith Metal Products. “Our Employee Owner-Operators are now trained on the equipment and process. We have received successful TiMIM moulding verification.”
