Abstract

Reserch News: Rapid production of high-tolerance metal parts with complex shapes through combining the sintering process with injection molding, a technique usually used for plastics, is described. Injection of a mixture of metal powder and binder is followed by removal of the binder (right) and then sintering to the final density (left).
