This paper presents an experimental comparative study between 6 holes implant produced by Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) process with the commercially available plates manufactured via machining process. MIM implant has been compared with four commercially available 6 holes stainless steel implants. The study data variables are the ultimate tensile strength, hardness, Young’s modulus and elongation. Methods employed in this experiment are Tensile Test using Series IX Automated Material Testing System 8.33.00, Vickers Hardness Equipment and Scanning Electron Microscope. The results showed that the mechanical properties of MIM implant were as good as the commercially available machining implants. The most encouraging result was that the MIM plates had the highest Young’s Modulus and elongation among the specimens. This demonstrates that MIM samples are the least susceptible to implant failure as it can withhold more stress before it fractures.
