Injection Moulding

Stage 1
Ceramic powders and organics are added to a special mixing device and intimately mixed together

Stage 2
The resultant mix is granulated and fed into an injection moulding machine

Stage 3
A ‘ram’ forces the ceramic into a ‘heated zone’ that liquifies the binder and allows the ceramic to flow under pressure into a mould

Stage 4
The mould and the formed ceramic component is cooled quickly to form a solid

Stage 5
The mould is split and the solid ceramic component is ejected
