The evolution of continuous furnaces for MIM
The MIM industry’s success over the last two decades, in particular the spectacular recent growth in Asia, can be attributed in large part to the availability of continuous production systems.
Delivering enhanced quality, energy efficiency and capacity The introduction of continuous debinding and sintering furnaces has significantly improved Metal Injection Moulding’s ability to challenge machining and investment casting for the production of high volume precision components. Early systems, however, had a number of restrictions that hampered both production flexibility and the drive towards increased energy efficiency.
Binder systems lie at the heart of the Powder Injection Moulding process, enabling metal and ceramic powders to be injected into a die as if they were plastics. Binders have, of course, evolved significantly since the earliest days of PIM and their ongoing advancement enables part producers to continue to push the boundaries of what can be achieved.
