The metal injection molding (MIM)process has gained significant credibility over the last 20 years and has become prevalent in market segments previously impenetrable, including medical implants and aerospace componentry. Many variants of the technology have been developed and commercialized, resulting in over 400 commercial MIM enterprises worldwide. This book is designed to serve as an up-to-date reference for this rapidly changing technology. The editor, Donald Heaney (Penn State, US) brings together the viewpoints of leading experts from around the world to provide a clear and concise handbook that will serve both the business decision makers and technical practitioners.

The introduction provides a business view of applications, financial performance and growth potential. From there the book is divided into four technical sections: general processing, quality, specialized processes and specific materials.The general processing section provides guidelines for component design and detailed processing information on each of the MIM process steps, while the quality section expands on the limited generalized literature on MIM quality.The final two sections, on specialized processes and specific materials, provide a view of some of the unique variants achievable by modifying the MIM process and focus on both contemporary and emerging metal systems capable of being processed using MIM technology.
