PIM showcase to promote MIM and CIM technology at Formnext 2019

September 9, 2019

A major showcase of more than a hundred components manufactured by Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) will be held at Formnext 2019, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 19-22. These processes, which come under the umbrella of Powder Injection Moulding (PIM), enable the high-volume production of net-shape, high-precision components from a diverse range of materials, including stainless steels, superalloys and titanium alloys.  

Organised by PIM International in partnership with Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, the showcase is designed to highlight the capabilities of PIM technology and its broad range of application areas. These include the automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, medical and general engineering sectors.

Sascha F Wenzler, Vice President of Formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt, stated, “As the leading global exhibition and conference on Additive Manufacturing and the next generation of intelligent industrial production, Powder Injection Moulding fits perfectly into the scope of Formnext. We are delighted to be able to showcase the capabilities of MIM and CIM to our international visitors.”

“Since its launch, Formnext has seen visitor numbers increase dramatically, from 9,000 visitors in 2015 to nearly 27,000 in 2018. Made up of product designers, management, engineers, technicians and entrepreneurs from an impressive range of end-user industries, this is an ideal audience to present with this group of dynamic technologies, to the benefit of both our visitors and the industries we represent, added Wenzler.

Nick Williams, Managing Director of Inovar Communications Ltd, Shrewsbury, UK, stated, “The success of the metal Additive Manufacturing industry since the inaugural Formnext exhibition in 2015 reflects a growing acceptance of the use of metal powders for the production of high-performance end-use components for both general engineering and critical applications.”

“As technologies that have much in common with metal AM, both in terms of the starting powders and also, in the case of metal Binder Jetting and Fused Filament Fabrication, the binders and the sintering equipment used, MIM and CIM are a natural fit. Through our publication PIM International, we are excited to be able to cooperate with the Formnext team to promote the technology on such an important stage.”

The showcase, located in Hall 11.0, Stand A51, will feature parts from Europe, North America and Asia and includes award-winning parts from the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) and Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)‘s Metal Injection Molding Association (MIMA) along with numerous application examples from Germany’s MIM Expert Group (MIM Expertenkreis) and CIM Expert Group (Expertenkreis Keramikspritzguss).
