Keywords:

  • metal injection molding at micro-scales (µMIM) - powder injection molding (PIM), producing net-shaped/near-netshaped parts, classified into ceramic injection molding (CIM) and metal injection molding (MIM);
  • MIM on a micro-scale, or micro metal injection molding (µMIM) - process for mass production of complex metal micro-components or micro-structures;
  • µMIM, new technology - for mass production of metallic micro-components or micro-structures, problems and constraints still to be resolved
