Hannover Messe 2016
AMT was part of The Hannover Messe 2016, the world's largest industrial trade exhibition. This year for the first time, the trade exhibition was organized with the United States as the Partner Country and US President Barack Obama attended the opening ceremony and toured the exhibition together with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. AMT is proud to be highlighted by the prestigious event as one of the Metal Injection Molding & Ceramic Injection Molding related exhibits this year:
"AMT, based in Singapore, is a major supplier of MIM parts to the Asian market, however the company also has a strong presence in Europe and the United States. All major MIM business segments are supplied by AMT including medical, electronics, automotive and industrial sectors." The importance that AMT attributes to the medical sector is reflected in the company's installation of a clean room for assembling medical products.
Zulkefli Zainal, Director of Marketing at AMT, stated, "We have also started to produce parts by Selective Laser Melting, and Additive Manufacturing process, to complement our Metal Injection Moulding services. We can now offer customers the chance to create totally new design ideas as well as to test various design options before investing in a MIM tool for mass production. AM also puts us in a position ot produce metal parts in small volumes of between one and a thousand parts." Various prototypes can be manufactured by AM and tested in a short space of time and necessary design adjustments are inevitably less costly when tool changes are not required.
One of the exhibits at the AMT stand was a prize winning automotive component, the injector nozzle shown in Fig.2. This part won a Grand Prize in the 2015 Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) design competition. It is used in commercial vehicle diesel engines and serves to reduce the emissions of climate-threatening NOx gases by injecting urea and compressed air into the exhaust gas of the engine. This decomposes the nitrous gases into nitrogen and water in a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. This technology allows the vehicles to pass the Euro 6 regulation for emission control. The part is made from stainless steel and contains complex internal channels that are formed by a patented method employing a removable plastic core."
