The Ecrimesa Group’s board of directors reports that it has approved an investment of €2 million in a new continuous Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) production line as part of its 2021/2022 investment plan.

This investment will include a new continuous debinding and sintering furnace from Cremer Thermoprozessanlagen GmbH, Düren, Germany, and injection moulding machines from Arburg GmbH + Co KG, Lossburg, Germany. The new line is scheduled for operation during the first quarter of 2022 and will allow Ecrimesa to increase its production capacity to 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. In 1994, the company was the first MIM manufacturer worldwide to install a continuous sintering furnace for MIM part production.

The Ecrimesa Group is made up of three companies, each located in adjacent buildings in Santander, Spain; the Investment Casting company Ecrimesa, the MIM manufacturer Mimecrisa and the machining company Mecansa.
