Chinese steel structure China steel structure association of powder metallurgy branch reported the newest progress of metal injection molding in China.In recent year, MIM industry is growing fast. Many of people enter this industry in each year.
The report say that there is about more than 130 MIM factory at present in China,don’t including Taiwan.With 65 of the pearl river delta, Yangtze river delta have 35, Beijing, tianjin, hebei and shandong area 20.The rest is located in hunan and other areas.
The output of metal injection molding material is 6000-7000 tons.the import material was about 3000-3500 tons in 2015 year.
In China, the most widely machining MIM material is stainless steel and low alloy steel,about occupy 80% output,but its mostly stainless steels are 316L and 17-4PH,tungsten material occupy about 10%,the other 5% is hard alloy,including alloy and titanium alloy.
