  • Designing with Metal Injection Molding in Mind

    Medical device manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to innovate to provide life-saving solutions to compete in a global marketplace. As pressures constantly drive the need for innovation, the primary tendency is to focus on innovating the product and less so on innovating the methods in which the product is made. Metal injection molding has garnered significant momentum over the past decade, but many engineers are still hesitant or unfamiliar incorporating MIM into their designs for this innovative manufacturing process over conventional processes they are accustomed to, such as CNC machining.

  • Metal Molding – It’s Not Just a Theory

    Covid-19 has impacted many industries, but very few companies have felt it quite as sharply as medical device manufacturers. And, as if the pandemic wasn't enough on its own, over the past 12 months we've seen a cargo ship splayed sideways in a canal, a hacked pipeline, and global raw material shortages. Metal injection molding, MIM is a green technology built around specialists with the ability and metallurgical expertise to formulate feedstocks in-house which means it doesn't rely on fragile supply chains, greatly lowering risk for OEMs.
