The metal injection molding (MIM) process achieves high densities, enhancing the strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance of stainless steels. These materials are manufactured from pre-alloyed or elementally blended stainless steels, and include austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and precipitation hardening grades.
Metal Injection Molding Alloy
Low alloy steels are generally used for structural applications. Depending upon the heat treatment applied, they can satisfy a broad array of applications that call for hardness and strength.
These MIM materials are manufactured from pre-alloyed powder or mixtures of iron and other elements like nickel, chromium, cobalt, and silicon. These alloys include some that are classified as soft-ferromagnetic materials which means they can easily be magnetized and demagnetized. Others are used for various medical applications.
The MIM process lends itself to complex, high volume, and costly to machine components.
