This is very good news on the uptick in business for the MIM and powder metal business. Manufacturing innovations that serve design goals of reduced part counts, improved manufacturing costs by reducing waste and subsequent disposal costs are great for products in every industry.
I hope the process continues in all of the industries noted, especially health care components and automotive. High volume production with improved manufacturing costs will continue to drive innovation and accelerate adoption in other or related products.
Designs that can benefit from innovations in manufacturing are usually very interesting.
