Metal Injection Molding
Small, lightweight, repeatable, low cost and precision parts. Those are the qualities that Metal Injection Molding, or MIM, brings to your design. Used in industries such as medical, consumer electronics and high tech, MIM parts provide a way for our customers to control costs, weight and quality while producing large or small volumes.
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is an injection molding process where specific and finely-powdered metals are mixed with a binder. The process is similar to plastic injection molding, and requires an experienced and knowledgeable engineering staff.
In the world of magnetics, MIM has become a tremendous partner to compliment assemblies that utilize metals. MIM parts have been used as shunts, shields, and other parts of the assembly to give a better magnetic circuit if the materials are chosen correctly. Utilizing a MIM part in conjunction with your assembly could yield better results than CRS or some other exotic metal.
If you are interested in MIM parts for your magnetic assembly, or even as a standalone part not related to magnetics, contact us.
