Benefit: Cost Saving
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Consumer Goods
Material: Ferrous


This MIM part, is used in Opto-Electonics Packages, and one of the requirements is that the material should have a dilation curve similar to that of the glass used to seal the connection. The part is moulded from a composition designated as F15 (Ni-Co-Fe); tolerances on the holes is +/- 0.02mm. A critical factor for the customer is that the MIM electronic box is tested to check hermeticity after the part has been subjected to temperature shocks.


The part replaces a similar one made by machining and brazing which as a process was much more expensive than MIM.
