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.
Metal injection molding (MIM) is a method for creating freestanding parts that can be used in a variety of industries. MIM allows for the production of complex geometries with little or no post-processing, putting them at an advantage over assembly, machining, and casting techniques.
