AMT MIM - Ceramic Injection Molding

Ceramic Injection Molding

Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) is a manufacturing process used to mass produce precision ceramic components with complex geometries. The four basic processes of mixing, injection, debinding and sintering are similar to that of Metal Injection Molding (MIM).

CIM excels at various engineering applications, using a wide range of ceramic materials which includes alumina, zirconia, zirconia-toughened-alumina (ZTA) and spinel. These materials offer superior material properties such as chemical inertness, high temperature stability, wear resistance and electrical insulation.
