Over the past year, the manufacturer has developed a new process for moulding low-volume stainless steel parts, which is now available commercially. Proto Labs says that it is now accepting metal injection moulding orders for low volumes of stainless steel parts. 

"The launch of metal injection moulding at Proto Labs lets us fill a nearly unoccupied space in the manufacturing industry, which is the short-run production of metal parts," said Proto Labs president and CEO, Vicki Holt. "MIM has traditionally been limited to large-scale manufacturing of tens of thousands of parts; we can now machine a mould and deliver around 5,000 parts in about three weeks."
