Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a powder metallurgy process that utilizes plastic injection molding technology to shape a component or part. It is an enabling process that creates opportunities for increased part functionality and lower production cost.
Our MIM Process section provides detailed information on the steps involved in Metal Injection Molding.
Experts in MIM
PTI is a leader in advanced Metal Injection Molding. We apply our unique metallurgical expertise in the development of high quality parts from advanced materials such as nickel based super alloys (such as Inconel 718), F75 and aerospace grade 17-4 PH. We operate an integrated facility, with state-of-the art equipment, under strict controls at every step of the production process. From feedstock manufacturing to molding and high temperature sintering, our procedures are highly regulated during the production of parts in order to meet the strict demands of our customers in the Aerospace, Healthcare, Electronics, Commercial and Military sectors.
