Advances in consumer technologies are enabling a variety of products to be developed using novel approaches to historical manufacturing processes. The sophisticated fabrication process of particulate injection moulding is one such process, ideally suitable for the production of components 1 to 100g. Derived from the merging of technologies from the powder consolidation sector to the polymer injection moulding industry it is one of the fastest growing areas of the mid volume manufacturing sector.
This paper presents a review and analysis of a range of NZ products produced from titanium metals. A focus on the drive to size reductions and the requirements that arise from such miniaturisation is seen through comparisons between current products, products under development and targeted future products.
