PolyMIM GmbH, the feedstock supplier of water based feedstock systems based in Bad Sobernheim, Germany, has announced the development of its own catalytic feedstock system. PolyMIM GmbH states that it is currently the only feedstock manufacturer on the market offering two different binder systems for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).
The catalytic debinding system, branded polyPOM, offers high green part strength and fast debinding times. The company’s alternative water soluble binder system, polyMIM®, offers superior carbon control and environmental friendliness. The PolyMIM® feedstock system, states the company, can also be used for special alloy manufacturing such as Cu-alloys and tungsten carbides.
“Only by offering both feedstock systems will it be possible to address all the needs of customers when selecting a solution for their respective component,” stated PolyMIM’s Sabine Pätow-Molz.
Low alloy and stainless steel grades are now available in the polyPOM range, in addition to the wider polyMIM® range.
