Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) is ideal for near net-shape, high-volume production of complex, tight-tolerance ceramic components. Ceramic Injection Molding offers significant advantages over conventional forming methods:
Ceramic Injection Molding Process
Material Preparation – Our application engineer help you choose from variety of advanced technical ceramics.
Molding – State-of-the-art injection molding machines heat feedstock to a flowable state and pressure inject it into a steel mold. The part then is cooled until solid and ejected from the mold
Debinding – Some materials may require either thermal or chemical bath debinding prior to the sintering process.
Sintering – In kilns capable of exceeding 1700° C, ceramics are sintered to full density, removing any remaining binders or organics.
Finishing Operations – If needed, operations such as ceramic machining, grinding, Lapping and Polishing Services are available to meet customer specifications.
