The process starts with deciding and preparing the feedstock or compound. Fine metal powder is mixed with synthetic binding material to precise amounts. At Rompa Group we can offer our clients up to 20 different alloy types.
The Metal Injection Molding is identical in technique and equipment as how we do plastic injection molding. The products are placed in an oven and undergo a thermal-chemical process. The process happens at around 200 degrees. The molded part will cool down and then ejected from the mold so the process can repeat.
Remove the synthetic binding material
The next step is to remove the synthetic binding material. This is usually done during thermal-chemical processes where the powder fuses and forms a fully metal product.
Post processing is possible depending on the requirements of the client.
