Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM)
Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) for Durable, Complex Parts
Ceramic has been a material of choice for demanding parts that require high resistance to heat, corrosion, and wear. Today, ceramic injection molding (CIM) services from Phillips-Medisize make it possible to manufacture this durable material into small and micro-sized parts with complex geometries.
When it comes to ceramic injection molding, enterprises worldwide have barely scratched the surface in tapping the potential of CIM. The process is ideally suited for applications in limitless industries.
Combine ceramic materials and injection molding, and you get these benefits:
- Small, highly complex geometries you can’t get with other forming processes, such as pressed powder and machining
- High strength
- Superior corrosion resistance
- Complex geometries without machining
- Excellent surface finish
- Overall part size and weight reduction
- Consolidation of multiple components into a single design
- Reduction of part count and assembly time
Is Ceramic Injection Molding Right For You?
Ceramic is comprised of inorganic, non-metallic material. Put simply, any solid material that is not a plastic or metal can be defined as a ceramic. In applications where plastic or metals won’t do, ceramic may be the solution. Ceramic materials are tough enough to withstand acid corrosion, extreme heat, heavy friction, high pressure, ongoing abrasion, and exposure.
