Metal Injection Moulding Workshop and Pressing Process
Metal Injection Moulding is process of manufacturing that is similar to plastic injection moulding which can produce smaller parts of high tolerance and extreme complexity. While both plastic injection and die casting processes deal with hot molten liquid, metal injection moulding, on the other hand, utilizes a mixture of powder and binder raw material which is referred to as feedstock.
The process of manufacturing takes place in four different stages for metal injection moulding from the mixing and formation of feedstock to the final sintering process, the four major steps utilize various equipment in the workshop. At Eurobalt Engineering, our metal injection moulding workshop is fully equipped to handle all your production needs.
Equipment in Our Metal Injection Moulding Workshop
Working with us, from the manufacturing of tooling to the sintering process for finishing the product, all the processes are carried out in-house. We have numerous state-of-the-art machines in the production workshop, some of them and their work are listed below.
From the raw material processing to the finishing of work, we are experts in all the processes involved in metal injection moulding. Equipment, small and large, everything is available inside out workshop and this makes us the best partners for your production needs.
Pressing for Shape
Before the debinding or sintering process can even take place, the granules formed out of the powder mixture need to be pressed into the shape required. After the granules are created, they are fed into the high-pressure press machine where the tooling is located.
While the tooling is locked shut, the feedstock is passed through from one end of the tooling and then pressed together under high pressure. After the pressing is done, the so-called “green part” is formed, which is then passed to the debinding phase.
There are multiple press machines in our workshop, each operated by trained employees well-versed in the use of the machine. These machines also help us in meeting demand of our clients and delivering goods on time. There is no doubt that it is beneficial for our clients to have all the tools and machines under one roof.
At Eurobalt® we pride ourselves in running an efficient workshop where the employees are trained and the machines run as they are supposed to. So, give us a call or send us an email so we can fulfil your pressing, sintering and debinding needs for your next metal injection moulding project.
