MIM Design Guidance

Thin wall
A wall thickness of less than 6 mm is suitable for MIM. In addition, extremely thin walls of <0.5 mm is also achievable for MIM, but it has high requirements for design.

MIM part's demand ranges from a few thousand to millions like casting parts or injection molded parts. MIM requires customers to invest in mold and tool, so for small batches, it usually affects cost estimates.

Raw material
MIM materials are varies. Although non-ferrous alloys such as aluminum and copper are technically feasible, they are usually handled in other more economical ways, such as die casting or CNC machining.

We help you upgrade your existing products in design and material selection, and help you with a full range of product development services including industrial product design, technical analysis, rapid prototyping and data scanning.
