Dear "es" and all,
Could it be that you were asked about "MIM" Metal Injection Molding.
It is a technique where small metal particles are injection molded with a
plastic substrate in seminormal conditions. The parts are the placed in
about 1300 Centicrade oven for some time. The plastic melts away leaving
some 9x,xx% metal part that has shrunk 20-30%.
They do this in stainless steel, Titanium etc.
It is a good method for serial production of large volumes of relatively small
(diam under 2") parts.
As Iäm no expert on this method all corrections are welcome.

Subject: stainless steel casting
I have been contacted by a company from switzerland, and I think that I
missunderstood his enquiry. Well my question is, is it right that stainless
steel could be used as a casting material for getting stainless steel products.
My main experience is in plastics and I am a bit lost on this matter.
I wpould very much appreciate an answer from any body.
Thank all in advance!!!!
