MIM design is similar to plastic molding design; this is due to the similarities in the molding process. Fortunately, the MIM process provides a level of design freedom that is unmatched by other metal manufacturing processes. MIM offers the ability to create overhangs, undercuts, threads, and other complex geometries. At APP, application engineers and Ph. D. Metallurgists are on standby to work with customers to take their part design and engineer a production capable MIM component.
