Metal Injection Molding Versus Metal 3D Printing

Why it matters: Manufacturers today who are searching for a cost-effective way to make small and complex metal parts for production by and large only have two options: metal injection molding (MIM) or investment casting. Metal 3D printing is the new entrant to the scene, and for the first time in a long while adds another option to the engineer’s toolkit.

The Economics of Metal Additive Vs. Traditional Manufacturing

Manufacturers working on their new products and researching the most cost-effective way to manufacture small and complex parts need to be investigating three key benefits of bind & sinter technologies:

  • No tooling, no need to buy expensive molds
  • No minimum order quantities
  • Shortened lead times
