MEDPIMOLD technology for complex ceramic and PM parts

The MEDPIMOLD technology offers a robust production route for many ceramic and metal parts, also in small to medium size production volume. For some products, such as metal-bonded diamond components, it may be the only feasible technology. The equipment design and technology can be modified to better fit particular manufacturing needs.

The technology includes powder pre-processing, Medium Pressure Injection Moulding and extractive/evaporative binder removal. Recent development has covered the use of supercritical carbon dioxide extraction in order to create a closed-loop, fast and environment-friendly production process. Advances in this development as well as some product examples using the MEDPIMOLD technology will be described
