In the weapon industry many mechanical components are used, which have a complex, sophisticated geometry and which must be able to withstand strain. If one, for example, wanted to produce these parts through chip removal, this would originate very high costs, due to the high percentage of the volume which would need to be chipped (80-90%). Thanks to their high strength, MIM parts fulfill the same requirements, all while originating considerably lower costs, due to the complete utilization of material and the omission of chip processing. One can find such components, for instance, in the breech of a pistol or in semi-automatic and automatic weapons. There are more uses for MIM parts in the weapon industry, from self-defense up to guided missiles and aviation.
