Alliance MIM: France’s MIM leader prepares for opportunities in the aerospace sector
Besançon, the capital and commercial hub of the Franche-Comté region in eastern France, is the heart of the French watchmaking industry and home to CETEHOR, a highly regarded research institution specialising in watchmaking technologies. The area, situated close to the Swiss border, has a long tradition of fine mechanical and metalworking industries.
On this fertile ground prospers France’s only MIM producer, Alliance MIM SA. Dr Georg Schlieper recently visited the company and reports exclusively for PIM International about its approach to MIM technology and new markets.
World PM2016: PIM technical sessions review advances in novel titanium alloys for biomedical applications
The World PM2016 Congress and Exhibition took place in Hamburg, Germany, October 9-13, and attracted over 1900 participants and 200 exhibitors. Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) was one of the key themes of the Congress technical programme, with both researchers and manufacturers presenting their latest innovations.
In our first report from the Congress Bernard Williams reviews a number of technical papers which focused on the development of novel titanium alloys for biomedical applications.
World PM2016: PIM as a route to high performance superalloy components for aero engines and gas turbines
In the second of his reports on Powder Injection Moulding presentations at the World PM2016 Congress held in Hamburg, germany, October 9-13, Bernard Williams focuses on high temperature (HT) alloys for applications in aero engines and land based gas turbines.
As well as covering the use of PIM for well known HT nickel-base superalloys such as Inconel 713LC and Inconel 718 the report also includes the Powder Injection Moulding of a new class of HT alloys based on Nb-Si.
ExOne: Customised and low volume 316L stainless steel firearms components using Binder Jetting technology
ExOne® Binder Jetting 3D printing technology offers Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) producers an effective route to overcome the challenges of low volume and customised component production where tooling costs make conventional production unviable. The technology has the added advantages of being able to use existing MIM furnaces for sintering and, thanks to recent system enhancements, standard MIM grade powders.
In the following article the team from The ExOne Company (ExOne) highlights recent innovations along with the use of the technology by US custom firearms component specialist Wicked Grips.
