A DVD showcasing the capabilities of metal injection molding (MIM).
PM and MIM: Touching Your Life, a new video showcasing the capabilities of metal injection molding (MIM) as one of the fabrication technologies known collectively as powder metallurgy (PM), is available for purchase in DVD format.
The 15-minute program, aimed at potential end users who may not be familiar with PM and MIM, is built on the theme, "Every day, in some way, PM and MIM touch your life." It is divided into two distinct parts: Part One introduces the viewer to powder metallurgy in general using dozens of examples of actual components to illustrate the part-forming technologies' benefits, with particular emphasis on their contributions to the concept of sustainability; Part Two deals specifically with the metal injection molding process, providing design engineers with all the facts needed to understand why, if they're designing an intricate metal part, they should think of MIM from the start.
MIM fabricators should find the video an indispensable tool with which to equip their sales and marketing personnel. It is an ideal vehicle to use as a seminar introductory piece. What's more, companies involved in any aspect of PM and MIM can use it to orient all employees, as it quickly stimulates an appreciation of the value they bring to customers' products. For complete flexibility of use, Parts One and Two can be accessed independently with a simple click from the opening menu. The new program was produced by MPIF with funding provided by the Metal Injection Molding Association.
