eMBe Products & Service GmbH, Thierhaupten, Germany, has been rebranded as Krahn Ceramics GmbH following the company’s acquisition by Krahn Chemie GmbH in May 2019. The company’s headquarters have also been relocated from Thierhaupten to Hamburg and its machines and equipment integrated into a new technical centre in Dinslaken, Germany. 

Krahn Ceramics states that it sees its role as a project partner for those looking to process ceramic and metal powders both by Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) and filament-based Additive Manufacturing (AM). The company reported that it can support its customers through all stages of the production process, from raw materials supply to the finished component. 

Services offered to Krahn Ceramics’ customers range from consulting to laboratory services, tailor-made product development and small series production. Dr Stefan Stolz, the company’s Managing Director, stated, “The feedback we received at the Formnext trade fair confirmed that the market has a great interest in such a broad-based technology partner and source of inspiration. We are very much looking forward to realising the numerous product ideas of our customers together.”

“In addition to the European market, we also have an eye on the USA and Asia,” he added. “There, we can draw on established structures and networks of the Otto Krahn Group, among other things. This means that we have internal access to a lot of market-relevant information in order to be able to develop business.”
