Höganäs AB includes Metal Injection Moulding in key industry segments for growth and development

June 28, 2011

Swedish metal powder producer Höganäs AB has identified six segments where it sees especially high potential to create cost efficiency and environmental benefits using powder technology. The segments were outlined in the company’s 2010 Annual Report, published earlier this month.

The company states that it has appointed specialist “Global Development Teams” to cover each segment, with the assignment of developing an understanding of needs for application ideas and customer collaborations.

The areas identified are Powder Metallurgy, specifically the development of automotive gears, Surface Coatings, Brazing, Electromagnetic Applications, Filters and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

Höganäs stated that MIM was a “technology that offers the same benefits as pressed components, simultaneous with greater design flexibility. In the future, many forged or cast components should be suitable for injection moulding with powder.”

The full 2010 Annual Report is available for download from the Höganäs AB website.
