Zoltrix: Leading Chinese Metal Injection Moulding producer increases capacity and targets new international markets
China’s Metal Injection Moulding industry has grown tremendously over the past decade, in part as a result of the huge demand from the consumer electronics sector. In the following article, PIM International’s Nick Williams profiles one of the country’s leading MIM producers, Zoltrix Material International Limited.
Zoltrix, a company with a strong track record in the high volume production of aesthetic components for the consumer electronics and luxury markets, is now increasing capacity in order to grow its presence in the automotive, medical and smart wearable sectors.
Dynamic Group: A toolmaker’s perspective on the challenges and opportunities in Powder Injection Moulding
Toolmakers are in a unique position in the PIM process chain, with decisions that are made when designing and manufacturing a new PIM tool having a major influence on the technical and economic success of a part.
As the following article reveals, toolmakers specialising in PIM not only have to be able to work at the cutting edge of what is technically possible, but they are also in a position to gauge the growth of the industry and the technology. We profile leading PIM toolmaker Dynamic Group and share the company’s unique perspectives on the development of the PIM industry.
Praxis Technology: Taking the next step in the commercialisation of high performance TiMIM alloys
Praxis Technology has for many years been at the forefront of the development of titanium Metal Injection Moulding for medical and consumer applications. As Praxis’ Joe Grohowski and Paul Sheffield explain, the company is now building on the knowledge gained in commercialising Ti-6Al-4V by exploring the potential of higher performance materials such as Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo, Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al and Ti-5Al-5V-5Cr-3Mo. These materials were selected to address the demand for Ti alloys with improved tensile strength and creep resistance.
Czech ceramics specialist Vibrom adds Metal Injection Moulding to its PIM portfolio
With more than ten years of experience producing Ceramic Injection Moulded parts in the Czech Republic, Vibrom s.r.o., a small family run company, has over the past two years also introduced Metal Injection Moulding production to the country.
PIM International profiles the challenges the company has faced in introducing both Ceramic Injection Moulding and Metal Injection Moulding and its ambition to become a significant player in the European PIM industry.
Hannover Messe 2016: Promoting Metal Injection Moulding and Ceramic Injection Moulding technology to a global industrial audience
Powder Injection Moulding may only account for a fraction of the total global demand for industrial components, but the number of MIM and CIM companies exhibiting at the Hannover Messe continues to steadily increase.
Dr Georg Schlieper visited the exhibition once again for Powder Injection Moulding International and reports on what Metal Injection Moulding and Ceramic Injection Moulding producers had on offer.
