Expo exhibitor interview: Yoshitaka Fukushima, Atect Corporation

Yoshitaka Fukushima, chief engineer, Atect Corporation explains the challenges facing powder injection molding (PIM), both present and future

 

What are the current challenges in powder injection molding (PIM)?
Molding different materials at a density equivalent to solvents is challenging. Another challenge is learning how to mold highly universal and low-melting-point materials such as Cu and Al, which has been considered impossible in the PIM industry until now.

What new technologies is Atect working on at the moment?
Although stainless steel is generally used for PIM, we are working on the development of difficult-to-mold special ceramic, ultra-hardness steel e.g. tungsten carbide, heat-resistant steel, magnetic materials and low-melting-point materials in order to mold them at a high density and produce a stable supply.

How will PIM technology have changed by 2030?
Although precision in the process in terms of achieving the desired dimensions has been considerably improved compared with 10 years ago, an abrasive machining after-process is still sometimes required in order to meet highly strict specifications. In 2030, we believe that meeting these specifications without an after-process will be possible.
