Special PIM seminar to be held at Arburg’s Czech subsidiary

November 15, 2011

On 30 November, PIM specialists and parties interested in the injection moulding of metal and ceramic powders will meet at Arburg’s Czech subsidiary in Brno. A one-day seminar will be held with the participation of various specialists from the fields of materials, injection moulding, academia and equipment.

The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. with a presentation by Hartmut Walcher, Application Development Consulting PIM, on the topic of “Powder injection moulding – an innovative process”, which will provide a general overview regarding the processing of powder materials on injection moulding machines.

He will be followed by Arnd Thom, Business Manager Powder Injection Molding of BASF SE, who will discuss PIM materials and their optimum use. Next, the flow behaviour of powder components will be the subject of a presentation by the University of Zlín.

The first part of the event will be concluded by Claus Joens from the US debinder and sintering furnace manufacturer Elnik Systems LLC, who will present the relevant systems and describe the process through to the finished part.

Practical machine demonstrations

Following a short break, the series of presentations will be continued by Prof. Martin Trunec, University of Brno, on the topic “Processing of fine ceramic powders and experiences with bio-ceramic implants”.

Uwe Haupt, Key Account Manager, and Marko Maetzig, Development Department PIM at Arburg, will end the 30-minute impromptu presentations with a contribution on the subject of “Injection moulding machines for PIM processing”.

The seminar participants will then be able to see an example of this type of processing in practice on an Allrounder. PIM moulded parts will be produced “live” on the specially-equipped machine.
