Our unique Titanium Metal Injection Molding (Ti MIM) process opens the door to new design options with vastly reduced production costs.
The base for the Ti MIM process is a fine Titanium powder, mixed with thermoplastics to create a feedstock. The feedstock is injection molded in custom tooling to create the desired shape, followed by an extraction process to remove the organic components. The last process step is a heat treatment (sintering) which gives the final product its density and durability.
MIM is a so called Net Shape technology, which means that no scrap is produced throughout the process.
Element 22´s Ti MIM process is a result of more than 30 years of R&D. We make our own feedstock, closely control material properties, feature consistent repeatable quality and have developed sophisticated simulation software to streamline development. We take on the most challenging projects thanks to the strongest engineering team in the industry.
