Ecrimesa expands MIM production as demand increases

February 14, 2022

Ecrimesa has received two new injection moulding machines from Arburg which are scheduled to be operational by the end of February as part of the company’s new MIM production line (Ecrimesa Group)

The Ecrimesa Group, Santander, Spain, has received delivery of two new Arburg Allrounder 370 A injection moulding machines as part of its Metal Injection Moulding production line expansion announced in July last year. As part of the expansion, the company will also receive a new Cremer MIM Master continuous debinding and sintering furnace in March.

Once installation is complete, Ecrimesa will have a total of thirteen injection moulding machines across four continuous lines and two two vacuum sintering lines.

The Arburg machines are expected to be in production by the end of February and, when the MIM Master is operational, the MIM production line will increase the company’s production capacity by around 30%, enabling the processing of over 250 tons of feedstock per year.

Based in the northern city of Santander, Ecrimesa is one of Europe’s leading MIM manufacturers, with more than twenty-five years’ experience in the technology. “Our MIM business has increased over 10% per year since 2010,” Alejandro Martinez, Managing Director Ecrimesa Group explained to PIM International. “Our strategy is focused on maintaining this growth over the next five years, not only in Europe but also in USA.”

Founded in 1964, Ecrimesa Group produces steel and aluminium with cutting-edge technologies: investment casting, MIM, machining and additive manufacturing.

Based in Northern Spain, the company today produces more than 9,000 different parts for customers in the automotive, defense, aerospace, textile and food industries around the globe. Being the first company worldwide to develop the process of fabrication in continuous furnace with catalytic debinding, Ecrimesa Group´ facilities include the latest machinery and qualified staff to develop projects in the most efficient technology.
