Benefit: Increased Component Complexity, Weight Saving
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Defence
Material: Ferrous


It is necessary to design a suitable MIM process to prevent distortion and cracking in the final parts. The part is an underbarrel, which has led significant savings in terms of manufacturing costs to the customer, especially in machining operations.
