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.
While commercial plastic Additive Manufacturing has been a reality for nearly thirty years, metal Additive Manufacturing is largely still in its infancy despite the technology existing for nearly two decades. This is due to the difficulty of using metal Additive Manufacturing to produce cost-effective parts to the high quality and high volumes necessary to make it attractive for broader applications.
With its Metal Jet system, HP Inc. hopes to change this, making the technology accessible to industry. In this article, HP’s Uday Yadati explains how the Metal Jet system can bring further success for MIM producers.
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.
