MIM Simulation: What and How it works

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a metallurgic process for the production of complex shaped materials, starting from a raw material under the form of metal dust compacted in pellets. The MIM process is normally divided into 3 main phases:
  • Plastic injection moulding
  • Debinding for the elimination of the binder
  • Sintering to reach the finished component
It is used especially in the production of very small and complex components where other conventional production systems would be make production inefficient or impossible. MIM is the right technology when high resistance to impact, fracture, fatigue and corrosion are required, as well as materials difficult to process which require a high quality finish.

For confidentiality reasons, we currently have no publishable MIM simulation images.

Using ProCAST and DEFORM simulation software makes it possible to predictably reproduce the MIM process, preventing any shrinkage, porosity, metallurgic defects, residual stresses and all process conditions. The design and process parameters will thus be optimised before being put in production.

ProCAST and DEFORM have been designed to help the user cut costs and reduce production times.
