Headmade Materials and Cold Metal Fusion: An innovative approach to sinter-based Additive Manufacturing

In recent years there has been a surge in interest in sinter-based metal Additive Manufacturing, with many of these technologies adapting the materials used in Metal Injection Moulding. Whilst Binder Jetting (BJT) and Material Extrusion (MEX) processes lead the field in terms of market penetration, sometimes something radically different comes along. This is certainly the case with Germany’s Headmade Materials, whose Cold Metal Fusion (CMF) AM process takes a completely new approach.

Dr Georg Schlieper visited the company and reports for PIM International on the company and its technology.

SSI Sintered Specialties: Expanding horizons through ‘next-generation’ MIM materials and Binder Jetting

SSI Sintered Specialties, LLC can trace its roots back to the earliest days of Powder Metallurgy in the US. True to its name, that company has over the decades found success through specialisation, in particular stainless steel PM products. This is a theme that continues today, with the company now expanding its horizons through the development of large MIM parts using innovative feedstock technology, and the adoption of metal Binder Jetting.

Bernard North visited the company on behalf of PIM International and reports on its plans to remain at the forefront of metal powder based parts production.

Powder Injection Molding (PIM), comprising Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM), is an advanced manufacturing technology for the production of precise, high volume, net-shape components.

Whilst many design engineers remain unaware of the potential of this technology, Powder Injection Molding is today a global industry with annual sales in excess of $2 billion and strong growth rates.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Metal Injection Molding. You can also download past issues of PIM International magazine in PDF format from our archive, offering insight into the technology and its applications.
