Indo-MIM is a leader of manufacturing components for the automotive industry using the metal injection moulding (MIM) process and said to be the largest MIM company in the world, in terms of installed capacity and revenue. The MIM technology is a process typically used to manufacture components that are small in size, have intricate and complex design elements, and are required in large numbers.
The company is participating at FISITA World Automotive Congress with the main objective of spreading awareness about the MIM technology among the automotive industry OEMs and partners. Indo-MIM presented at the Technology Theatre, highlight MIM parts currently active in several automotive applications. This is expected to enable attendees to understand the benefits and value addition by adopting the MIM technology.
In order to facilitate interaction with technical experts, and gain deeper insights into the key aspects of the process, Indo-MIM is also showcasing several products through its stall at the expo. Visitors will witness components that were successfully migrated from conventional manufacturing processes to the MIM process of manufacturing. Innovation in design and manufacturing process, tooling mechanism and incorporation of features in MIM parts without additional machining processes are central to Indo-MIM’s core working philosophy, the company said.
The capability of being able to offer custom material options is another key area of innovation, where Indo-MIM has proven its expertise. The team at Indo-MIM team is committed to co-work with leading automotive partners in a VA/VE environment from the development phase itself, leading to a cost-effective solution. The technology of MIM, as a disruptive technology, is claimed to be ideally suited to meet the design challenges associated with stricter emission norms and need for new developments. Avenues where Indo-MIM can offer an innovative solution through MIM are integrated part design, miniaturization and superior customised material properties. These features will enhance the performance of the application as well as meeting the future challenges in the automotive industry.
