Among the production routes to small complex ceramic parts, powder injection molding is the most attractive alternative. It combines near net shape capability with good surface finish and is easy to automate. With the development of the catalytic debinding process for polyacetal binders, the main impediments for the acceptance of ceramic injection molding as a mass production method can be overcome. The use of this system ensures short molding cycle times, high green strength and fast debinding without deformation. Ready to mold compounds are commercially available for various oxide and non-oxide ceramic materials as well as the equipment needed for this process.
