In the past, Titanium Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and other Powder Metallurgy (PM) technologies provided cost benefits but could not meet the material properties and finishes demanded by the medical device market. Recent developments in Ti MIM technology now deliver on all fronts: economic, aesthetics and physical properties.

Topics covered include:
  • How the material properties of the sintered Ti PM parts now meet and can exceed those of wrought material in static and dynamic strength
  • Ways new sintering technology delivers Titanium products that are extremely homogenous, repeatable and isotropic
  • Advantages for design flexibility and mass production of most Titanium components cost effectively
