Ceramic Injection Moulding has been a key driver in enabling the world of technical ceramics to expand from a narrow range of industrial applications to a new generation of uses in advanced engineering, high-end luxury goods, innovative medical devices, and components for electric and hybrid vehicles that are enabling society’s shift to a lower-carbon future.
In this extensive review, Dr-Ing Tassilo Moritz considers recent developments in CIM production technology, materials and applications, and identifies trends that will affect the outlook for the sector.
Asia’s burgeoning consumer electronics sector has been the driving force behind much of Metal Injection Moulding’s growth over the past decade. Can this sector now help drive the MIM of titanium?
Leading Chinese Ti MIM specialist Shenzhen ElementPlus Material Technology Co., Ltd. believes that competitive powder prices, cost reductions thanks to more flexible processing, and the development of new applications with specific performance requirements, have created the perfect conditions for a breakthrough. The company’s General Manager, Daomin Gu, shares her insights with PIM International and reports on progress to date.
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.
