Hi to all,

have you made experiences using RP to produce moulds for Metal Injection
Moulding (MIM)?
Which technologies have been used, what were the results and benefits and where
is need for improvements?
Of interest are especially dimensional accuracy and surface roughness, but also
strength and endurance of the tools.

Thanks in advance, best regards,

Dipl.-Ing. Carsten Freyer
