MIM technology is a very important molding technology in the medical device industry. Small medical devices, precision parts, high-precision parts, and high-performance parts are basically produced using MIM technology. It is also very cost-effective for the production of complex precision parts. Common MIM medical instruments include ear parts, hemostatic forceps, laparoscopes, scalpel handles, dental parts, forceps, scissors, orthopedic joint parts, etc. The current trend in the medical industry is minimally invasive surgery and minimally invasive plastic surgery. Many medical device parts that need to be used are produced by MIM technology. Minimally invasive MIM surgical parts have various geometric shapes and complex structures, which require very high dimensions and accuracy. At present, stainless steel, titanium and nickel-titanium alloys are widely used, and MIM technology is used for dental implants.
The automotive industry has become a major application area for MIM parts, such as numerous MIM auto parts with complex shapes used in engines, gearboxes, turbochargers, locking mechanisms, steering systems and electronic systems. Such as 1) The rocker arm of the BMW engine. One is a rocker arm that rotates with the rollers. This is a rocker arm made of low alloy steel that controls the variable valve timing travel of the engine. It is characterized by its hollow structure and light weight, which is difficult to make by other methods; (2) Shift lever. This is a very high volume MIM custom parts for manual transmissions in passenger cars. The production process of this part is: injection molding, sintering, hardening and assembling the shaft. The material used is Fe2Ni, and the parts should be carburized and quenched after sintering; (3) Turbocharger blades. The production of such MIM variable area nozzle vanes used in automotive diesel turbochargers is high. This part can meet strict dimensional tolerance requirements, and the blade profile can reach an accuracy of ±0.015mm by machining. The blades are produced with special moulds, which have excellent sliding function when opened and reduce deformation when they come out. MIM production can reduce production costs by 20%.
