Metal parts processing for a new generation


Teibow’s MIM division is ISO9001-2008-certified.

MIM—Advanced technology that brings the future of metalworking to the present

Representing one of the latest metal processing techniques, MIM (Metal Injection Molding) was created by fusing traditional plastic injection molding technology with powder metallurgy. Injection molding using metal dies makes it easy to manufacture otherwise hard to machine parts, including micro, precision, intricately shaped, and 3D parts. MIM is also superbly suited for mass production, as demonstrated by our ability to manufacture at rates ranging from 1,000 to 1 million pieces per month. MIM works best for parts that weigh around 0.05 g to 50 g, but it can also mass-produce parts weighing up to approximately 100 g.

We began manufacturing and selling parts based on MIM in 1994. We have been quick to pursue quality and cost development in this area, and we have endeavored to reduce the cost of metal part manufacturing, including by serving as the core business member of “Development of Low cost, High performance Metal Part Manufacturing Based on MIM,” a Regional Revitalization R&D Project (overseen by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) carried out in fiscal 2003 and 2004. Moreover, we have successfully enhanced the stability of MIM based mass production by partnering with a metal powder manufacturer to develop parts made with high precision SUS powder.
