High precision, flexibility and intensive customer support: How Demcon MIM is planning ahead for long-term growth
Since the early days of Powder Injection Moulding in Europe, the Netherlands has been home to a highly capable MIM and CIM industry, including a number of companies which have been featured in previous issues of PIM International.
In this article, Dr Georg Schlieper reports on a recent visit to Demcon Metal Injection Moulding, a company that is enjoying success in a diverse range of markets and has an ambitious strategy for efficiency-driven long term growth.
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.
