Greatest gains come when MIM is used to form structures with properties not possible from plastics. It is essentially a three or four step process involving:
● Formulation of feedstock from appropriate metal powders and polymers.
● Molding of that feedstock into tooling that is designed for the final part and includes increasing the size of the 3D model the tooling will be made to compensate for sintering shrinkage thermal processing of the shaped part to remove the polymer (de-bind) and sinter the powder.
● The final step might be accomplished in a single cycle or in two separate steps of first de-binding to remove the polymer followed by sintering. SMP has both continuous (a conveyor furnace that moves parts gradually through several heat stages) and batch furnaces (components are de-bound in one furnace and manually moved to a sintering furnace).
