POM based CIM feedstock launched by INMATEC Technologies GmbH

February 15, 2017

INMATEC Technologies GmbH, a leader in the field of feedstock production for Ceramic Injection Moulding, has announced that it will be expanding its product range to include polyoxymethylene (POM) based Ceramic Injection Moulding feedstocks.
A team at the company, which is based near Cologne, Germany, has developed the new INMAPOM CIM feedstock and confirms that the system will be launched in the coming months. POM based alumina, white zirconia and black zirconia feedstocks will be available.

With the INMAPOM binder system the company states that it is completing its objective of offering the complete range of binder systems for the Powder Injection Moulding market. “Customers have the freedom to decide which feedstock system they would like to use and can choose between INMAFEED, the wax based binder-system for water debinding, INMAFLOW, the polyamide based binder-system for solvent debinding with acetone and INMAPOM, the POM based binder-system for catalytic debinding,” stated the company’s Managing Director Moritz von Witzleben.

“With INMAPOM feedstocks Ceramic Injection Moulding manufacturers can use the fast catalytic debinding process. Catalytic debinding technology, which is already well known in the PIM industry, allows producers to operate a fully automated production process with continuous 24/7 operations. This is an advantage for high volume part production in the CIM industry.”

The new INMAPOM CIM feedstock system will be available globally for industrial-scale projects and it is stated that full technical support is offered in all world regions by an team of experienced experts in Ceramic Injection Moulding. “We have an established project team for the INMAPOM feedstocks that can ensure that customers will have the necessary support to handle the INMATEC catalytic debinding system,” added von Witzleben.

INMATEC Technologies GmbH will be presenting its first INMAPOM ceramic feedstock grades, which are targeted at various industries including electronics, automotive interiors, consumer, medical and communications, at the Ceramics Expo 2017, April 25-27, in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
