Our Roots

I

n 1997, AF Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. was founded as a 50-50 joint venture with a renowned North American MIM company and an Indo-American industrialist with the intent of establishing a manufacturing base for MIM products in India. A core team comprised of Indian engineers, metallurgists, designers, toolmakers, and technicians were trained in MIM technology with the US partner. In 2001, 100% ownership of the venture was acquired from the American collaborator, and INDO-MIM Pvt. Ltd. was born. Today, after 20 years of supplying MIM products to companies across the globe, our customers have come to know us as simply,

 “INDO-MIM”.

The Present

Over the years, INDO-MIM has grown its facilities into what may be the largest installed MIM capacity in the world. Over 3, 90,000 sq. feet of advanced MIM manufacturing and finishing capability are equipped to manage the entire MIM process from beginning till end.

Not only INDO-MIM boasts of an in-house tool room which can produce 45-50 tools per month and designing assistance but also INDO-MIM has an integral manufacturing set-up that includes MIM process as well as the in-house secondary (post-MIM) processes for MIM parts. Vertical integration of finishing technologies like Electro less Ni and Trivalent Cr plating, vacuum and sealed quench heat-treating as well as precision grinding and CNC machining to micron tolerances is within our capabilities. INDO-MIM also offers plastic injection and insert molding as well as a full range of product assembly and integration services.

Our Future

Our core belief is that we should provide lasting value to our customers and shareholders alike. To do so we are developing core competencies beyond MIM. Some of them include investment cast products, develop ceramic products through injection molding, advanced machining of medical and aerospace products as well as complete medical device integration as part of our expanding core capabilities. Our imagination for the future is matched only by our enthusiasm to achieve impossible tasks.
