Mimecrisa, the Metal Injection Moulding business of Spain’s Ecrimesa Group, based in the northern city of Santander, is one of Europe’s leading MIM manufacturers, with more than twenty-five years’ experience in the technology.
The company, which was the world’s first MIM manufacturer to install a continuous sintering furnace for MIM part production, continues to go from strength-to-strength, with a reputation in particular for the production of parts that push the size limits of the technology.
Georg Schlieper recently visited the company on behalf of PIM International and reports on the history and current status of the company.
The aerospace sector has long been recognised as an important potential market for the Metal Injection Moulding industry. However, extended application development cycles, combined with a lack of fundamental process understanding and rigorous validation requirements have, until now, held back the technology.
In the following article, Rolls-Royce’s Enrico Daenicke and Schunk Sintermetalltechnik GmbH’s Ingolf Langer report on the development of a new generation of high-performance MIM components that are now flying in Rolls-Royce aero engines: IN713LC superalloy stator vanes.
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.
