Numerical Simulation of Debinding Process in Metal Injection Molding

Lih-Wu Hourng and Yau-Si Lin
Abstract—These instructions give you guidelines for preparing papers for the International Journal of M Abstract—In metal injection molding, the debinding process is one of the key steps. An improper debinding process will cause the damage of the products. The present paper aims to simulate the capillary debinding process by Navier-Stokes equations and the level-set method. The influences of metal particle size and spacing on the bridging phenomena between particles and the irreducible saturation of resin are investigated. Results show that a large particle spacing is preferred to lower down the irreducible saturation of the resin. And a large irreducible saturation will occur when the particle size is either too large or too small.

Index Terms—Bridging phenomena, capillary debinding, numerical simulation, metal injection molding.
