Ceramic injection moulding

Ceramic injection molding creates a perfect symbiosis between the processes of ‘injection molding technology’ with its versatile configuration options and ‘high-performance ceramics’ with their remarkable material properties.

Pioneer in ceramic injection molding

In the Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) sector, Kläger is one of the pioneers. Ever since the mid-Nineties, we have been working with this innovative technology. It creates a perfect symbiosis between the process of ‘injection molding technology’ and the materials known as ‘high-performance ceramics’. The familiar mold design options for the processing of plastics, e.g. internal and external threads, internal recesses and ribs are all applicable to ceramic components through the use of injection molding technology. As well as the qualitative benefits of technical ceramics as materials, this also means that the injection molded part can, in many instances, also benefit in terms of economic viability, i.e. cost.

Volume production of components

In more than ten modern injection molding machines, Kläger produces key components in annual volumes ranging from 500 to 4 million units. A tremendously diverse range of furnace variants is available for debinding and sintering operations. Depending on the quantity and geometry of the components, the most cost-effective mold is defined. We also assume responsibility for hard machining of components, as and when required for functional or process-related reasons.


Materials development and market leadership

Over the last few years, Kläger has been expanding its development and production capacity on a continuous basis. At this time, we are one of the market leaders in this field, in terms of both quality and quantity. We work primarily with a tremendously broad range of oxide-based ceramics. As well as the material compounds our engineers develop in-house, we have the technical capabilities needed to process all material systems available on the market (thermal and catalytic debinding).
