Powder injection molding (PIM) is a technology that allows you to produce highly complex components made of metal (MIM) or ceramics (CIM).
ARBURG attaches great importance to reproducible and stable production processes, as defects in the molded part can't be eliminated by downstream debinding and sintering.
Test suitable feedstock mixtures, from preparation to binding and sintering of molded parts – do the test with us in Lossburg. We are also happy to use your molds.
Do you have an ALLROUNDER at your company? Then it's also basically suitable for powder processing. We will 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 ferrule connecting 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.
