Formatec BV, based in Goirle, the Netherlands, has added Metal Injection Moulding to its manufacturing portfolio. Through this addition, the Ceramic Injection Moulding specialist states that it can even better serve customers through a more diversified range of technologies. By assembling a new team of MIM experts, Formatec stated that it is confident to be able to offer metal parts and products to the same quality that its customers are used to in ceramic.

All of Formatec’s R&D and production is undertaken in-house at its facility in the southern Netherlands. “After some years of small-scale MIM production of refractory metals like tungsten, we decided to expand our production staff by acquiring a team of MIM experts. At Formatec we can now offer the same high level of knowledge and expertise as we do in Ceramic Injection Moulding and Additive Manufacturing,” stated Jaco Saurwalt, Formatec’s COO.

René Bult, General Manager at Formatec, added, “I’m excited that we can finally announce the expansion of our production capabilities with MIM as we can now provide an even better, well-rounded array of manufacturing methods to our customers. Their demand is what drives our developments and I’m looking forward to start working on new challenging projects with them.”
