UPDATE: As of Tuesday, January 9th, 2018, Dynacast International Inc. and its operating divisions, Signicast and OptiMIM, will become a family of brands under a newly formed entity, Form Technologies. This article was published prior to this change.
The MIM process is suitable for producing small and even micro-size components, often with very complex geometries, using metals such as stainless steel, titanium, copper and more. Dynacast has been manufacturing small- and medium-sized die cast components for more than 70 years using aluminum, magnesium and zinc alloys. By adding MIM as a new service offering, the company strengthens its commitment to producing the highest quality, precision-engineered components for its customers.
"We are delighted to be adding MIM to our service offerings," says Simon Newman, President and CEO of Dynacast. "This process is a natural fit for Dynacast, as it only sharpens our focus on providing small, complex components to our customers and it opens up a whole new market for us," Newman noted. Dynacast offers two manufacturing processes in addition to MIM: die casting and injected metal assembly (IMA). These processes are used to make metal components and assemblies for thousands of companies in hundreds of industries aroudn the world.
