Iron based parts
MIM process is most applicable to materials difficult to handle on the machines, materials with multiphase microstructure or high strength materials. MIM technology allows producing complicated design ideas into high precision, excellent characteristics of the final product. That is usually necessary for production of parts or assemblies weighing from 0.1 g to 250 g.
Cross sections, usually less than 6.35 mm. However, the details are not limited to this combination of mass and the cross-section. Tolerances are about ± 0,3-0,5%, although certain dimensions may be in the range of ± 0,1%. Inhomogeneous variety of metals can be realized by MIM technology.
