With this technology, the advantages of plastic injection molding (geometric design freedom) are combined with the advantages that are known from powder metallurgy (processing of demanding, difficult or non-machinable, possibly also non-castable construction and functional materials).This makes it possible to mass-produce complex, ready-to-install molded parts made of metal with maximum reproducibility and a wide range of material properties.
|Green part||Brown part||Sinter part
|Injection-molded part with a binder content of approx. 10 percent by weight.||
By removing the first binder component,
the so-called matrix,
the still unsintered, porous brown part.
|Completely debindered and solidified by sintering component, which is dimensionally tightly tolerated and ready for installation.|
- high density of 97%,
- homogeneous powder distribution,
- no alignment of the powder particles.
- Compliance with tight tolerances,
- Density of 97% of the theoretical density,
- round, separated, evenly distributed micropores,
- no crack formation due to micropores.
|These properties lead to non-directional shrinkage and a high component density, which is a prerequisite for gas-tight sintered parts.|
