Development and evaluation of P/M processing techniques to improve and control the mechanical properties of metal injection molded parts


"Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is one of the most rapidly growing areas of powder metallurgy (P/M) but the growth of MIM into new markets and more demanding applications is limited by two fundamental barriers, the availability of low cost metal powders and lack of knowledge and understanding of how mechanical properties, especially toughness, are affected by the many parameters in the MIM process. The goals of this study were to investigate solutions to these challenges for MIM"--Abstract, page iv.
