2003 - Metal Injection Moulding(MIM) Technology with 18ct Gold - A Feasability Study

0.00

MIM technology is currently employed in the mass production of parts made from steel and titanium. The technique competes with traditional manufacturing techniques such as machining, pressing and stamping, and the casting process. There is limited information available about the MIM process for precious metals and jewelry production. The manufacturing of MIM parts with jewelry gold alloys is not clear. This paper presents a feasability study about the manufacturing of MIM parts with 18Kt jewelry gold alloys. The results presented are being compared with traditional manufacturing technologies. At the end there will be a commercial overview of the capital (equipment) and the process costs of the MIM technology.
