Ortech – revolution in ceramic injection molding

Ceramic injection molding is ideal for high-volume production of complex, tight-tolerance components, ceramic injection molding offers significant advantages over conventional forming methods:

• Cost-effective technique for complex designs
• Ability to produce net or near-net shape parts
• Very tight tolerance control
• Low-cost, high-volume manufacturing runs

Complex ceramic parts can be manufactured easily and reliably

high-quality ceramic injection molding opening up new possibilities for making complex components with economic and technical benefits:
• High degree of automation
• Wide range of shapes
• Near-net-shape manufacturing
• Good mechanical properties

for complex designs

Ideal for high-volume production of complex, tight-tolerance components

Perfect for complex designs

gives designers and users maximum scope in terms of workpiece design

Very tight tolerance control

Extremely Tight Tolerances (up to ± 0.25%) with every single part.

many different possibilities

complex metal and ceramic geometries in ceramics injection molding: undercuts, cross-holes, blind holes, grooves, threads, surface structures and lettering.

Near-net-shape manufacturing

Ability to produce net or near-net shape ceramic parts

Build Something Beautiful

In many cases, the surface quality of components made with CIM is such that no finishing is required.

Unlimited materials

Variety of ceramic materials available to meet numerous application needs

Wide choice

Wide range of materials available for CIM. Our range comprises typical material groups including Alumina Oxide, Zirconia Oxide, Zirconia Toughened Alumina, Silicon Nitride, ESD-Safe Materials and Porous Materials.

Ceramic Injection Molding Process

Material Production – Our application engineer help you choose from variety of advanced technical ceramics.
Molding – State-of-the-art injection molding machines heat feedstock to a flowable state and pressure inject it into a steel mold. The part then is cooled until solid and ejected from the mold
Debinding – Some materials may require either thermal or chemical bath debinding prior to the sintering process.
Sintering – In kilns capable of exceeding 1700° C, ceramics are sintered to full density, removing any remaining binders or organics.
Finishing Operations – If needed, operations such as ceramic machining, grinding, Lapping and Polishing Services are available to meet customer specifications.

What Client’s Say

A few words to mentionne that we have received the ceramic parts and we want to underline the excellent work done on the manufacturing.

You have delivered quality parts within very good tolerances. These parts will fit perfectly in our preproduction engines. We expect to go in production late this year or early 2016. We will retain Ortech as our favored supplier for these parts.

Again, thank you very much.
