Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM)
Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) for High Resistance to Heat, Corrosion and Wear
Ceramic injection molding (CIM) is ideally suited to manufacture durable, demanding parts that require high resistance to heat, corrosion, and wear. When you combine the benefits of ceramic materials with those of injection molding, CIM makes it possible to create highly complex geometries without machining, as well as reduce part count and assembly time.
Leverage the wide range of CIM capabilities at Phillips-Medisize to manufacture ceramic into the shapes and sizes your program requires, including small and micro-sized ceramic parts with complex geometries.
Solution Sheet: Durable, Complex Ceramic Parts Can Stand the Toughest Applications
In applications where plastic or metals won’t do, ceramic may be the solution.
Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) produces components with attributes that include:
- 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
