Abstract

Taguchi method of L27(313) orthogonal array is used in this paper as a tool in optimization of Metal injection molding (MIM) parameters for the highest green strength. Parameters optimized are the injection pressure, injection temperature, powder loading, mold temperature, holding pressure and injection speed. Besides those, interaction of the injection pressure, injection temperature and powder loading were studied. The metal powder of Ti-6Al-4V is mixed with binder 60wt% of palm stearin and 40wt% of polyethylene successfully injected at optimum parameter condition: 350 bar of injection pressure, 140°C of injection temperature, 65vol% of powder loading, 50°C of mold temperature, 600 bar of holding pressure, and 10 ccm/s of the injection rate. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) for the best signal to noise ratio (S/N) presents the contribution of the parameters to the quality characteristic (green strength). Results show that the mold temperature has highest significant percentage (27.59%) followed by powder loading (15.44%) and injection pressure (12.30%). Nevertheless, the analysis of variance does not show any contribution from interaction.
