Powder injection moulding looks to automotive applications for growth and stability

The PIM industry is now making significant progress in finding new applications in the automotive sector. Dr. David Whittaker looks at a sector that offers the prospect of relatively stable high volume orders.

 

Global research and development in powder injection moulding

Sustained research and development activity is critical to the future prosperity of the global PIM industry. Professor Randall German compares past and current levels of activity and identifies where the focus of attention now lies.

 

Powder injection moulding finds favour in EU collaborative research funding

Powder injection moulding (PIM) has benefited significantly from financial support provided for cross-border collaborative research projects funded by various European R and D programmes. This review summarises some of the key projects.

 

Metal injection moulding in Europe: ten facts that you need to know

Dr Frank Petzoldt reviews the status of Europe’s dynamic MIM industry.

 

Debinding process and carbon content control of hardmetal components by powder injection moulding

J L Fan, Z X Li, B Y Huang, H C Cheng and T Liu

By using a type of traditional paraffin wax based multicomponent binder and an improved oil+paraffin wax based binder, fully sintered hardmetal was manufactured by metal injection moulding process. The processes of thermal debinding in hydrogen atmosphere.

 

Simulation-based design for powder injection moulding

C. Hinse, R. Zauner, R. Nagel, P. Davies and M. Kearns

The injection moulding process as part of a PIM manufacturing process can be divided into several stages including filling, packing and cooling. Each of these stages can affect the dimensional precision and the performance of the moulded part after ejection and also have an effect on the debinding and sintering process.

 

Manufacturing and characterisation of isolated microparts made by PIM for a micro annular gear pump

T. Gietzelt, O. Jacobi, V. Piotter, R. Ruprecht and J. Hausselt

Powder injection moulding (PIM) is a very sophisticated, and for large scale series, a comparably cost-effective technique to generate parts with a complex shape made of hard to machine materials like ceramics. In this paper several Catamold feedstocks were used for manufacturing of micro parts.
