Abstract

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process is suitable for fabricating small parts in large quantity. In this work, relatively large and complex shaped parts were prepared thorough MIM. In order to decrease the deformation of sintered parts, powders of different sizes were mixed. The effect of powder particle distribution and powder loading on the distortion of complex shaped compacts were investigated and evaluated. Smaller deformation of thelarge and complex shaped parts could be realized by using mixed powder with smallerparticle.
