MIM powders

Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) a is high-technology process for formation of complex products manufactured from finely dispersed mixtures of binders with metal fillers.

This production method of complicated metal components without powder waste and subsequent machining is considered to be low-cost in case of mass production.

The application areas of components manufactured with the help of MIM technologies are varied. These are machine-tool industry (cutting tool elements, gear-wheels); precision engineering, instrument making industry, car manufacturing (door locks, fuel injection systems, safety shields, and door electric motors), electrical instruments (perforator and electric drill mechanisms components), medicine (surgical instruments, implants) and others.

The source raw material for MIM technologies is a mixture of binder and fine metal powder that is called “feedstock”. Metal powder is received via metal sputtering with the particle size from 5 to 20 microns.

POLEMA, JSC is a leading manufacturer of metal powder materials and products from them. It is an excellent base for the production of raw materials for MIM technologies as it owns the following advantages: 

  • 57 experience of manufacturing Fe, Cu, Ni, Co, Zn, Al-based powders.
  • A flexible production and an experienced team of process engineers allow us to manufacture a wide variety of grades on the client’s request.
  • A high homogeneity of powders according to the chemical composition.
  • Competitive prices for the analogues of foreign origin.
  • Powder production lots already tested by our partners.

At the moment we’re working on the modernization of our current manufacturing process introducing up-to-date technologies and modern equipment that will allow us to widen the range of produced powders as well as enhance their quality.
