Krahn Ceramics GmbH, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, will present its Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) solutions to an international audience at the leading plastic & rubber trade fair, K 2022, set to take place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 19-26, 2022.

“As a specialist for ceramic solutions based on Powder Injection Moulding technology, and part of the Otto Krahn Group, we can use our material and processing know-how and customise ceramic compounds to master challenges where plastics reach their limits,” stated Dr Stefan Stolz, Managing Director.

“Ceramics can offer customers from the plastics sector the option of opening up new markets – in this, we provide support as an innovative technology partner along the entire value chain from powder to the finished parts. At our booth, we would like to show the variety of possible applications for ceramics in the plastics field as well.”

In many applications where aesthetics play a major role, for example, in watchmaking and luxury automotive interiors, ceramics already play an important role. Ceramics are characterised by their durability; hardness; wear, corrosion, and temperature resistance, as well as a wide range of electrical properties.

Technical ceramics offer material properties that are ideal for high-performance applications, but Krahn also believes that they offer opportunities as an additional material offering for the plastics industry, as CIM feedstocks can be processed by the injection moulding processes already common practice for producers of polymer parts.

Krahn Ceramics specialises in the development and production of customised ceramic and metal compounds, which can be made according to customer requirements. As well as supplying ceramic powders, the company also provides its own binders and process additives, as well processing and technical support.

From its technical centre in Dinslaken, Krahn focuses on the production and development of binders and feedstock for both Powder Injection Moulding and ceramic Additive Manufacturing.
