Metal injection moulding (MIM) has gains much attention due to its ability in producing large amount of small part with complex geometry and intricate shape. In order to obtain better shape retention, optimum density of green part is required. This paper deals with the application of Taguchi method in optimising the green density of moulded components base on parameters setting in plastic injection moulding machine. For this purposes only 7 process parameters were considered here are injection pressure, injection temperature, cooling time, injection speed, injection time, packing time and mould temperature. An orthogonal array of L27 experimental base design was conducted. Base on the experimental results, cooling time plays significant contribution to density followed by injection pressure, time, speed, mould temperature, packing time and injection temperature. Confirmation test was done base on optimization level for each factors and shows good results in green density of the injected moulded samples.
