CHICAGO — Dynacast International Inc. is now offering metal-injection molding (MIM), allowing the company to expand its ability to produce small, complex components using a wider variety of metals.

The MIM process is suitable for producing small and even micro-size components, often with very complex geometries, using metals such as copper, stainless steel and titanium, Dynacast said.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based die caster, which has 22 manufacturing facilities in 16 countries, has been producing small and medium-sized die cast components for more than 70 years using aluminum, magnesium and zinc alloys.

"This process is a natural fit for Dynacast, as it only sharpens our focus on providing small, complex components to our customers and it opens up a whole new market for us," Dynacast president and chief executive officer Simon Newman said in a statement.

Dynacast currently performs traditional die casting and injected metal assembly, supplying finished components and assemblies to hundreds of end-use industries. Its five North American casting plants are in Elgin, Ill.; Lake Forest, Calif.; Milwaukee; Peterborough, Ontario; and Mexico City.
