Why is micro injection moulding (MiM) used?

Because the MiM method can produce parts where it is difficult, or even impossible to efficiently manufacture these items by any other means.

This ability to combine several typically prohibitive operations into one fluid process, ensures MiM provides numerous measurable savings, not only in the reduction of lead times but also the evasion of multiple processes usually amplified by miniaturisation. But MiM is recognised as a green technology thanks to the significant reduction in wastage compared to ‘traditional’ manufacturing methods, such as 5 axis CNC machining.
