Firstly advantage: full freedom of design
MIM technology can build more complex parts compared to other metal forming methods. Basically, all structures are achievable by injection molds can be applied to MIM.
Second advantage: more choices of material
Most of metal materials are functional in MIM, however, from economic perspective, applied materials mainly covers the iron-based, nickel, copper, titanium metal or alloy.
Third advantage: excellent physical and chemical properties
MIM physicochemical performance is also terrific because sintering density is highly close to the theoretical. For example, mechanical strength is significantly beyond traditional powder metallurgy.
Fourth advantage: delicate appearance
The surface roughness of MIM sintering green parts (Ra) can achieve 1μm. It can be obtained dazzling appearance by various surface treatments.
Fifth advantage: excellent dimensional accuracy
Generally, MIM can achieve accuracy tolerances ±0.5%. It can obtain an even higher dimensional accuracy once MIM works with other processing methods.
Sixth advantage: powerful and flexible production capacity
MIM can be adjusted flexibly and it can also rapidly improve the yield, which varies from hundreds a day to hundreds of thousands a day.
Seventh advantage: environmental friendly philosophy
The Utility of raw material used in MIM is close to 100%, which is a type of net forming technology, and can effectively avoid the waste of materials.
