The company has used its metal injection molding (MIM) technology to mold ÔSTÕ series type fiber optic connectors, using 17-4 ph stainless steel, for aerospace and military applications. MIM allows for more robust metals, as well as customizable alloys, to be molded into intricate, complex parts. As fiber optic communications become more prevalent in aerospace and military applications, use of the MIM technology for making fiber optic connectors becomes more necessary to handle the higher temperatures typically found in these industriesÕ applications. The Metal Injection Molding division of the company produces components to customer specifications at a lower total cost than can be accomplished using more traditional methods of machining.
