Abstract

This article discusses the process details of metal powder injection molding of microcomponents and the powder particle characteristics of feedstock and property requirements of binders. It reviews important characteristics to be considered in the processing steps: venting, channel diameters, binder segregation, binder degradation, feedstock supply, temperature control, demolding, debinding, and sintering. Finally, the article provides information on powder injection molding mold-filling simulation and two-component powder injection molding, offering a method for high-volume production of microcomponents made of multifunctional materials.
