Injection molding, is a method of producing shapes for industrial products. Products are usually molded using rubber injection molding and plastic injection molding, which is the most important way to process plastic products. However, with the development of technology, powder injection molding, nano injection molding and other injection molding processes for metal materials, has also been developed, and in some areas to obtain more and more applications, injection molding cross-border application of metal materials also collided with more and more sparks.
Powder Injection Molding - 3C New Trend
In recent years, the 3C industry has begun to take a more high-end metal route or even ceramic route, which has boosted the development of the powder injection molding (PIM) process. At present, PIM is commonly used in the field of cell phones, from the most previous cell phone vibrator to the 3C cell phone industry today, the card slot, the charger on the metal parts are used in this process.
is a unique high-precision production method for small and complex components that combines the design flexibility of plastic injection molding with the broad material selectivity of sintered metal and ceramic materials, including metal injection molding (MIM) and ceramic injection molding (CIM).
With the development of powder injection molding technology in China, more and more metal injection molding manufacturers are improving the application level of this technology. However, compared with the development of powder injection molding technology in Europe and the United States, the technology in Asia is subject to certain limitations.
The technology span is large, and there are very few comprehensive talents; the application is relatively concentrated, the development capability is limited, and the application in China is concentrated in stainless steel electronic products, and there are few other applications yet; the control system of process and procedure needs to be improved.
