The metal injection molding (MIM) design process combines decisions on the feedstock (metal and binder) materials, component geometry, component function, and fabrication process. MIM has the capability to produce a wide range of high-performance, complex-shaped components to net shape, meaning that little or no machining is required to develop the final component. MIM Components are equivalent to components manufactured by other net-shape fabrication methods.
