The Praxis Proprietary Process
Some of the biggest things we do are very, very small. Praxis can produce parts as thin as .04” and as thick as 0.5” with weights ranging from .02g to 150g. Our titanium injection molding process densifies parts to +99.5%.
TiMIM uses less material. Parts manufactured via Titanium Metal Injection Molding use nearly 100% of the metal powder, better material utilization translates to more cost savings. In many cases, components are net shape eliminating the need for any secondary operations.
Lower production expense. TiMIM is 20-50% more cost effective than other manufacturing processes like CNC machining, casting and additive manufacturing. With ideal volumes ranging from 10,000 to 10,000,000, the higher the volumes, the greater the savings.
Intricate features. TiMIM allows the freedom to design smaller, elaborate parts. Desired features such as ribs, bosses, grooves and threads are just the beginning of possibilities.
Secondary Possibilities. Praxis’ TiMIM parts behave identically to titanium conventionally manufactured and are compatible with all secondary operations such as CNC machining, surface finishing, passivation and anodizing.
Superior Materials. Our Ti-6Al-4V, Grade 5 material complies with the chemistry and mechanical property requirements of many ASTM specifications. Other titanium grades are available.
Consistency. With a validated TiMIM process and over 10 years of experience in powder metallurgy, Praxis provides TiMIM components that are extremely consistent in density, strength and dimension. Less variability leads to lower costs and lower lead times.
