Ceramic Injection Moulding:
Developments in production technology, materials and applications

Ceramic Injection Moulding has been a key driver in enabling the world of technical ceramics to expand from a narrow range of industrial applications to a new generation of uses in advanced engineering, high-end luxury goods, innovative medical devices, and components for electric and hybrid vehicles that are enabling society’s shift to a lower-carbon future.

In this extensive review, Dr-Ing Tassilo Moritz considers recent developments in CIM production technology, materials and applications, and identifies trends that will affect the outlook for the sector.

ElementPlus: Exploring opportunities for titanium MIM in the consumer electronics sector

Asia’s burgeoning consumer electronics sector has been the driving force behind much of Metal Injection Moulding’s growth over the past decade. Can this sector now help drive the MIM of titanium?

Leading Chinese Ti MIM specialist Shenzhen ElementPlus Material Technology Co., Ltd. believes that competitive powder prices, cost reductions thanks to more flexible processing, and the development of new applications with specific performance requirements, have created the perfect conditions for a breakthrough. The company’s General Manager, Daomin Gu, shares her insights with PIM International and reports on progress to date.

MIM-Master Neo: A new generation of the continuous debinding and sintering solution that changed the MIM industry

When first introduced in the early 1990s, the MIM-Master continuous debinding and sintering furnace system from CREMER Thermoprozessanlagen GmbH, in combination with BASF SE’s Catamold® feedstock, transformed MIM technology into a truly viable high-volume manufacturing process.

Today, the system has been further enhanced, and the ‘next-generation’ MIM-Master Neo promises even higher capacity, improved temperature homogeneity and reduced running costs. In this article, the company’s Jacqueline Gruber, Hartmut Weber and Ingo Cremer tell the story of MIM-Master and outline the innovations in the new system.

Small-scale, complex parts with a fine surface finish: An AM solution from Incus meets the demands of MIM producers

There can be few Metal Injection Moulding companies who are not actively exploring the potential of metal Additive Manufacturing in their business. Whilst Binder Jetting and Material Extrusion-based processes are gaining much attention, particularly for the production of larger components, things become more complex when it comes to producing the parts that fall at the smaller end of MIM’s size range, where surface resolution and finish become even more critical.

In this article, Dr Gerald Mitteramskogler shares insight into Incus GmbH’s Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing process with PIM International and explains why it is so well suited to use by MIM producers.
