As the global leader and world’s largest supplier of Metal Injection Molding (MIM), precision-engineered products with over 100 million metal parts produced annually for leading global OEMs, the partnership between Indo-MIM and Desktop Metal represents a major step forward in the progress of additive manufacturing.
Apart from being a full-service manufacturing partner, Indo-MIM will also offer consulting services revolving around downstream manufacturing and finishing processes, which are key to going to production with metal AM.
With their vast experience as the world’s largest MIM house in dealing with customers in automotive, aerospace, and other key industries, Indo-MIM is poised to bring metal AM closer to them and become a one-stop resource for the manufacturing of complex precision components and sub-assemblies.
The collaboration is set to further accelerate the potential and capability of the Production System to companies with diverse manufacturing needs, and shift the paradigm from prototyping to full-scale metal manufacturing.
Indo-MIM is scheduled to have the installation of the Production System at their San Antonio, Texas factory this summer, and begin taking production orders from customers by fall 2019.
