About the Powder Injection Molding (PIM) The powder injection molding (PIM) technique was invented by Dr. Raymond Wiech in the US in the 1970s. Though the PIM process is a simple concept, it is complex in real-time operations. The use of thermoplastic additives to plasticize powdered raw materials that are subjected to the injection molding process to obtain complex molded parts was a novel method that was initially developed to build ceramic components. PIM is the most effective technique to manufacture parts as it eliminates expensive machining operations while simultaneously enabling large-scale production of parts that justifies the cost of the mold to a great extent. Metal injection molding also helps in designing complex shapes by combining various features of the multi-part assembly into a single component. Technavio's analysts forecast the global powder injection molding (PIM) market to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% during the period 2016-2020.
