Feronyl invests in its Metal Injection Moulding production
June 3, 2014
Feronyl, a family owned company situated in Mouscon, Belgium, has been specialising in the production of technical parts in metal, composite and plastic materials since 1950. The company initially built injection moulding machines and moulding tools for sale worldwide and when this part of the business was sold it used its know-how in mould design and production for its own part production.
One of its early successes was converting an iron gear to an injection moulded nylon gear for use in the textile industry in the region, and today Feronyl operates a range of moulding presses having clamping force ranging from 10 to 1300 tons to produce parts from 0.5 g to 6.5 kg in weight.
The company has introduced Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) which it sees as a new technology for future growth, and is investing in the automation of its production with the introduction of robots on its moulding machines.
