How to Significantly Reduce the Cost of Titanium Medical Devices

Titanium metal injection molding (TiMIM) is a viable and competitive manufacturing method for small, complex titanium components. Once regarded as unfeasible or prohibitively expensive, TiMIM is rapidly being adopted as a go-to forming method for mid to high volume titanium implants.

The Metal Injection Molding Process: How TiMIM Parts Are Manufactured

The titanium metal injection molding (TiMIM) process is a method of manufacturing near-net shape components at production volumes from titanium alloys. Unlike investment casting and additive manufacturing techniques, TiMIM has high density and low contamination potential, making it a preferred method for manufacturing medical implants, high-strength mechanical components, and other demanding applications.

Titanium MIM Products: 4 of the Best Use Cases for Titanium Metal Injection Molding (TiMIM)

Titanium metal injection molding (TiMIM) is a method for high volume, precision manufacturing of small parts. TiMIM is performed by mixing titanium powder with a binding agent to form a thermoplastic compound. The compound is injected into a mold using an automated injection molding machine. The part is then removed from the mold and heated to remove the binder and densify the part, leaving behind a pore-free, dense part made to very tight tolerances and delivering excellent mechanical properties.

Medical-Grade Titanium (& What Sets Our Titanium Products Apart)

While metal injection molding (MIM) techniques are widely used in the medical device industry, there are distinct advantages when using medical-grade titanium alloys. The titanium metal injection molding (TiMIM) process produces pore-free parts that provide better corrosion resistance and biocompatibility than stainless steel alloys. Titanium is also significantly more efficient when used in ultrasonic applications.
