Designing for MIM

Designing for Metal Injection Molding

Not every metal part or metal assembly is a good candidate for Metal Injection Molding. At Smith Metal Products, we have the experience to know what works and what doesn't, so we developed a series of part criteria to help identify the best part candidates for MIM or possibly guide you to simple re-designs to make your part a fit for MIM.

These include:

  • Recognizing good candidate parts
  • Component surface finish
  • Component size range
  • Mass range

See our complete Design Guide for comprehensive MIM details.
