Metal Injection Molding
The Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process uses Ultra Fine metal powders and plastic binders to cost effectively produce small, complex parts for a wide variety of applications including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, dental tools, firearms, and medical devices. MIM results in net shape parts with mechanical properties nearly equivalent to cast and wrought products and allows high production rates while holding strict dimensional tolerances.
A pioneer in the development and production of sub 30 µm metal powders since 1990, Ultra Fine offers a tremendous variety of gas atomized alloy powders covering nearly every application. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing technology combined with a highly experienced powder team enable us to produce high quality material and meet customers’ commercial needs in as quick as two weeks. Great pride is taken in our ability to control the alloy's chemistry and particle size, as well as consistency within and between production lots. And with over 30 years of experience and our customer driven mentality, we can customize, develop, and produce materials to meet each customer’s unique requirements rapidly. In addition, by working with our partner Novamet Specialty Products Corp., a pioneer in value added powder processing for over 45 years, we can provide a variety of secondary treatments, coatings, and other capabilities.
