When to Use MIM

MIM is an established, highly evolved metal-forming technology, producing intricate components that go into a great variety of end products in countless industries. But, as is true with all metal-forming technologies, MIM is not suited for every application, all the time.

To help you understand exactly where MIM emerges as the ideal fit for component fabrication, in this section we offer some general guidelines to use in assessing whether your part is a candidate for the metal injection molding process. You’ll also find some straightforward comparisons between MIM and alternative technologies that will provide further data for your assessment. Finally, we offer a comprehensive, though not exhaustive, listing of the range of materials that are being used in the production of MIM parts.
