Metal Injection Molding

  • 2022 MPIF Award Winning MIM Part - Slide Release

    Originally designed for stamping, but the complex geometry was too much of a challenge, the powder metallurgy (PM) metal injection molding (MIM) process was selected for this one-piece firearm slide release. The air quenched and tempered S7 tool steel component was a Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) 2022 PM Design Excellence Awards Competition winner.

  • 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.
