Sports goods and hand tools
Benefit: Cost Saving
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Consumer Goods
Material: Stainless Steel


These parts for personal and professional hand tools and sports goods are made from case hardened steel like MIM-8620 with a surface hardness of 700 HV10 and fully hardened steel (arrow tip) MIM-Fe8Ni0.6C with a hardness of 50 - 55 HRC. A traditional costly manufacturing route of bending, welding and machining has been replaced by MIM. Close tolerances of ± 0.3 % are achieved, thin walls of 1mm ending in sharp corners and an external thread are possible directly by using MIM technology (see arrow tip).
