MIM Technology: the revolution in the field of fashion accessories
MIM Italy was founded in 2003 by a group of researchers from the Material Development Centre and specializes in the production of precision small metal parts for high fashion brands, using the innovative technology of Metal Injection Moulding: the injection moulding of steel powder and other metal alloys.
Stainless steel has many advantages over materials like zamak and brass: it is rust-proof, contains no lead, respects the regulated parameters of the release of nickel, and its quality remains unchanged over time, lending itself perfectly to being used in the field of leather goods.
MIM technology is identified through the injection of micronized steel powder into a special mould, subsequently sintered at extremely high temperatures. This technique allows the maximum freedom to design a metal detail, with the techniques typical of plastic materials, and combines the excellence of the mechanical properties of the most advanced materials.
The kiln used by the company for the MIM process does not release formaldehyde and has a reduced environmental impact. It is possible to apply traditional galvanic or PVD processes to stainless steel.
The production takes place within the company, which guarantees an accurate and continuous quality control: textbook Made in Italy for Luxury brands.
