Fulfilling the very challenging requirements of the customer, anautomatic tuner for electric guitars helps guitarists to keep their guitar perfectly tuned.


The MIM guitar tuner reduces the retuning time of a guitar to 1.5 seconds whereas normally an experienced technician would take 30 seconds. The guitar tuner also shows the possibility of MIM to exactly produce tiny parts. Complex shapes can be economically produced by investing only once in a single mould, giving a short ‘pay back’ time.
