The PIM process combines the forming process of injection moulding with the properties of metals and ceramics. For complex moulded parts in high-volume production.
With the PIM process, you can dispense with extra expensive assembly and joining steps. This allows you to work quickly and efficiently. Use the alternative to milling or eroding.
Another reason why powder materials might be of interest to you is that materials that are difficult to machine and therefore expensive, such as titanium, can be formed very cost-effectively.
Do you have an ALLROUNDER in your company? Then in principle it is also suitable for powder processing. We tailor the technology to your individual requirements.

In our PIM laboratory, you can test all the important process steps – from feedstock and injection moulding to binding and sintering of the moulded parts.
Together with its partner BASF, ARBURG injection moulded thin-walled, stress, and segregation-free sample smartphone backs made of metal powder (MIM) for the first time in 2016.
Manufactured close to the final contour, bionically optimised heat sinks for LED lighting make use of the huge scope for forming offered by powder injection moulding.
Ceramic ferrules connect glass fibre bundles for data transmission. Precise execution of the through hole, which is only 0.125 mm in size, is crucial. CIM achieves tolerances of +/- 10 µm.
