The MIM allows the free design of 3d shapes, just like injection molding. Due to the need for injection, the molding of products with complex shapes can help reduce the weight of the products and save raw materials to achieve the goal of reducing the weight of the final product. This makes the MIM an ideal way to combine more than one independent part into a multi-functional part.
Wall thickness less than 10mm is suitable for MIM, and thicker outer wall is also acceptable. However, to avoid excessive cliff wall thickness, Suzhou Chuanghongxu can make products with very thin walls of 0.2mm (but it depends on the specific shape of the product to a certain extent).
The accuracy of MIM near net forming is usually ±0.2%- ± 0.5% of the size.As with other technologies, high precision means higher cost, so modest dimensional tolerances are recommended as long as they can be used.Tolerances that cannot be met directly by the MIM can be achieved by subsequent machining.
The MIM is suitable for parts weighing less than 100g, with less than 50g being the most common application.Raw materials are a key cost factor in THE MIM process.The early stages of MIM product design tend to minimize the weight of components.As with plastic products, the weight of components can be reduced through cores and supports without compromising product integrity.The MIM stands out for small and micro components, which can weigh less than 0.1 grams, such as microgears.
For MIM products, molds and the pre-product development process are necessary for the MIM process, so for small batches of products (annual demand is less than a few thousand pieces), it usually affects the decision-making process.An increase in MIM production from a small volume of tens of thousands of pieces per year to tens of millions of pieces per year can be achieved very economically.
