The Quicksettm injection molding process is a new approach to the forming of net/near-net shape ceramic components. The Quicksettm process was developed to eliminate binder-related problems associated with thermoplastic or gel injection molding systems, which have traditionally been used to form complex-shape ceramics. Quicksettm has a demonstrated capability for shape forming and superior materials properties. Intelligent processing promises improved manufacturing efficiency and shortened product development cycle times. Coupling Quicksettm with intelligent processing produces a controllable and reproducible process for advanced ceramics. Process flow, process variables, and in situ process/product status sensors are described in relation to the intelligent processing goal.
