Krahn Ceramics announces new in-house CIM feedstock production line
March 2, 2023
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.
