Powder materials

With powder injection moulding (PIM), you can process feedstocks based on ceramics (CIM) or metal (MIM). This allows you to mass produce components with complex geometries. After the initial forming, the components must be debound and fired in the conventional way.

Benefits at a glance


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.

Dispensable steps

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.

Heat sinks

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.
