In recently years, Powder Injection Molding (PIM) is one of the powder metallurgy processes, which is gradually developing. The complex shaped and too much of a performance material can be produced by PIM process. This new production technology has a lot of excellent alternative comparison with other production process for metal and/or ceramic materials production. The mixing of binding and metal and/or ceramic powders are shaped in injection molds then the binding are removed and finally green materials are sintered after that the material is ready service. With all the characteristics, PIM requires high technology and economic and feasible process.
