|AT Wall specializes in metal injection molding (MIM) and ceramic injection molding (CIM), collectively known as powder injection molding (PIM).
The process combines injection molding technology with powder metallurgy and ceramic sintering processes to achieve near-net shape high volume production of complex mechanical components.
Process advantages: The process has some inherent advantages which, when taken advantage of properly, offer tremendous cost and performance benefits. PIM excels when part usage is large, part complexity is high, and part size is small. In addition, PIM parts also feature superior density (>98%) and surface finish (32 RMS typical) properties, near net shape processing, and material selection including both metals and ceramics.
