Metal injection molding combines the useful features of powder metallurgy and plastic injection molding to enable the production of tiny complicated metal components having outstanding mechanical properties. The Handbook of metal injection molding offers a comprehensive guide to this essential technology and its applications.
Part one provides an overview on the basics of the metal injection molding process with chapters on topics such as component design, important powder characteristics, compound manufacture, tooling design, molding optimization, debinding, and sintering. Part two offers a complete review of quality issues, such as feedstock characterisation, modeling and simulation, methods to qualify a MIM process, common defects and carbon content control. Special metal injection molding processes are the focus of part three, which offers comprehensive coverage of micro components, two material/two color structures, and porous metal techniques. Finally, part four explores metal injection molding of particular materials, that include stainless steels, titanium and titanium alloys, thermal management alloys, high speed tool steels, heavy alloys, refractory metals, hard metals and soft magnetic alloys.
With its eminent editor and expert team of international contributors, the Handbook of metal injection molding is an important guide for all those involved in the high-volume manufacture of small precision parts, across a wide range of high-tech industries such as microelectronics, biomedical and aerospace engineering.
