The MIM-Master series has been designed specifically for the Metal Injection Molding process (MIM). The MIM-Master is a fully automated installation. Through a combination of transport systems and lock doors, different atmospheric conditions required for the MIM process, can be achieved. Core of the MIM-Master furnace is the high-temperature sintering furnace featuring a modified walking beam system. Today several large scale applications are running, using the BASF MIM-feedstock.
In a MIM-Master furnace, modules of regular walking beam furnace, such as
Rapid cooling zones
can be installed, so even in a MIM-Master procedures of modern powder metallurgy can be applied.
