Beskrivelse af Produkt
Metal powder is mixed with plastic and injection-moulded to form the required geometry. This provides unique possibilities for producing far more complex components than in the traditional powder metal process. With MIM, the components can combine the flexibility of geometrical design from plastic and the hardness and quality of steel.
The unique design possibilities often mean that the finished MIM component is produced in a single process. Furthermore, the component will often replace a solution which previously consisted of several smaller components that were produced in several processes, in addition to reducing internal stock and easing the logistics of subsequent assembly. The savings made here help to offset the higher costs often related to the more complex tools required for the MIM process.
Moreover, it should be pointed out that there has been a considerable reduction in costs in relation to this process in recent years since the original patent expired. The process is now sufficiently mature for a huge range of applications.
