About Us

Advanced Forming Technology is the global leader in quality metal injection molding (MIM). We have the technology, processes, and people to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver accurate, quality metal injection components.

Your Vision Deserves Precision Components

Founded in 1987, AFT has continually invested in technology and its people to maintain the competitive advantage that benefits our many clients.

AFT’s metal injection molding machines are equipped with three, four and six axis robotics, to ensure consistent cycle time, and consistent processes. We also have an on-site machine shop to build and maintain tooling.

Quality Processes, Technology and People

AFT maintains ISO certification and Six Sigma Process Control for the highest level of quality and accuracy. We are AS9100-certified for Aerospace Components, ISO 13485-certified for the Medical Components Industry, and ISO/TS 16949-certified for the Automotive Components Industry.

AFT Design Advantages

At AFT, we encourage direct contact between our technical team and yours during all stages of the project. By involving our world-class team as early as possible in the design process, we can help you design an ideal part for our MIM process, and ensure the most robust and cost-effective component possible. Our team is always available at our facility to show you first-hand how the MIM process works, and help your technical staff understand how to best incorporate MIM into their designs.

In addition, AFT hosts a MIM School quarterly at our Longmont, CO facility to teach your engineers, buyers, and quality personnel the basics of the MIM process through classroom and hands-on learning in our facility. If current MIM School dates will not work for your team, we will work with you to schedule a personal MIM School for your team at our plant, or present it to you at your own facility. Our goal is to work with you as much as possible to ensure the success of your MIM programs, and guarantee you come back to AFT for your next project.


Our headquarters in Longmont, Colorado is just minutes from downtown Denver and the beautiful Colorado Front Range. With world-class skiing, golf, and mountain activities nearby, it’s easy to see why the world’s leading MIM professionals have come to work with us at AFT.
