State-of-the-art Atomization Process
Indo-MIM utilizes an advanced “Vacuum Melting With Inert/N2 Gas Atomization Application” with an “Anti-Satellite Blower” that yields dense powders with a highly spherical microstructure, very low levels of impurities, and excellent flowability. This carefully controlled production method ensures error-free metal injection molding and additive manufacturing of large complex structures for a variety of industries.
Heat-Treatable for Wide Applications
Many of Indo-MIM’s powders can be heat-treated to attain specific mechanical and physical properties after MIM or AM. Additionally, post-treatment options like Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) can be applied to further enhance the mechanical properties for the most demanding applications in industries like aerospace, biomedical, and automotive, which require high-performance materials.

Frequently Asked Questions
How strong is MIM metal compared to wrought metal?
In terms of strength and hardness, MIM components come close to wrought parts with a density of 95% to 98%. With post-treatment Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), MIM parts can reach a density close to wrought parts.
What is the benefit of MIM over traditional manufacturing?
The ability to quickly produce high-strength and complex parts on a large scale is the biggest benefit of MIM over traditional manufacturing. Additionally, MIM is more cost-effective and creates low material waste.
What are the common types of metal injection molding materials?
Stainless steel, tungsten, copper-based alloys, titanium alloys, low-alloy steel, cobalt and nickel-based superalloys, and soft magnetic alloys are some of the most common types of MIM metals in use.
What are some uses of metal injection molding?
MIM is used for a wide range of applications across various industries, including automotive parts, electrical components, medical and dental devices, household products, agriculture, and aerospace components.
