HANNOVER MESSE 2018,
23 - 27 April
The complex geometries of the flip slider and hinge barrel capitalized on the advantages of PIM technology and elevated mobile design to a new level.
The adoption of MIM in fabricating these pair of hinges components allow cost saving up to >3 times (compared to machining process). 17-4PH stainless steel was used to provide enough functional strength for the hinges components. It has a density of 7.5 g/cm3, tensile strength of 130,000 psi (896MPa), yield strength of 106,000 psi (730MPa), an eight % elongation, and a 27 HRC as-sintered hardness. The part design has won the Grand Prize in the electrical/electronic components category in 2006 Metal Powder Industry Federation (MPIF) Design Excellence Award.
This 105mm by 105mm by 1.5mm fiber optic connector is made of Kovar. It defied conventional PIM aspect ratio and size to meet specific dimension and hermetic requirement.
A MIM Flagstaff Nose or EMI nose shield, which serves as an external connector for a high-performance fiber optic module is fabricated through Metal Injection Molding ...
