ABSTRACT
The article reports that researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing and Advanced Materials have modified conventional injection moulding technique to enable the cost-efficient production of tough metal components. Injection moulding intricate parts in a number of plastic materials is a well-known and inexpensive form of production. However, for some engineering applications, thermo-plastic materials have inadequate mechanical properties. The researchers have modified this variation to produce micromechanical components. The process works by mixing the metal powder with a binding agent; the paste-like mass is then injection moulded.
