Development of PIM components for robot surgery

Dong Yong Park, Fehim Findik, Seong Jin Park


In this study, the micro forcep of end-effector for robot surgery was produced by powder injection molding. The 17-4PH stainless steel powder and binder system based on a wax-polymer were mixed to fabricate the feedstock. The optimum solid loading (vol. %) was determined by the torque rheometer experiments. After injection molding, debinding and sintering were carried out, final product having small and regular patterns was produced.
