Krahn Ceramics has successfully started its first in-house production line for Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) feedstock at its facility in the Rothenburgsort quarter of Hamburg, Germany. The move is reported to be in response to a growing demand for customised ceramic compounds, and is intended to strengthen its position as a partner along the entire value chain. The company is also relocating its headquarters to the Hamburg site of the Otto Krahn Group, thus forming a stronger partnership with its sister companies.

In the new production hall, Krahn Ceramics is manufacturing its CIM feedstocks using state-of-the-art powder mixers and shear roller extruders to deliver bespoke projects for customers. This production site is in addition to the technical centre in Dinslaken, Germany, which opened in 2020.

“The successful commissioning of the new production hall is an important step for us to develop Krahn Ceramics into a synonym for individual ceramic solutions. By building up our production, we intend to expand feedstock production in the coming years,” stated Dr Stefan Stolz, Managing Director of Krahn Ceramics.

“The further development and production of binders and additives, which serve as the basis for the ceramic feedstocks, among other things, are also on our agenda. We continuously develop new products and thus offer our customers the best solution for their application.”

Krahn Ceramics acts a project partner for the processing of ceramic and metal powders, accompanying customers through the value chain. Its portfolio includes products and services such as powders, binders and feedstocks for Powder Injection Moulding, as well as related forming processes, debinding, sintering and surface finishing.
