With 30 years of experience in the metal and ceramic injection moulding industry, LÖMI GmbH is adding its know-how in the area of process engineering for debinding and solvent recycling systems to ColdMetalFusion. The company aims to work together with other ColdMetalFusion partners on robustness of Metal AM through joint standards. Other partners will make their announcements later this year.
Engineer-operated systems manufacturer LÖMI GmbH has joined the ColdMetalFusion Alliance together with other major industry players. The announcement follows the recent developments of its industrial Solvent Debinding System for the Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) manufacturing process and underlines the company’s fit into the ColdMetalFusion standards.
“Debinding of metal parts is part of our DNA, and we have a long history of collaborating with the industry from large scale chemical site-projects down to producing our renowned all-in-one debinding-stations. As we join forces with the other ColdMetalFusion partners we want to elevate Metal Additive Manufacturing to a more robust and reliable alternative to injection molding. Together with the ColdMetalFusion partners LÖMI will provide complete, industrialized system-solutions and deliver its know-how in sintering to the world’s factory floors. We understand ourselves as the industry’s partners,” says José Manuel Dias da Fonseca, CEO of LÖMI.
ColdMetalFusion Alliance is an alliance of industry leaders with decades of experience in the fields of sintering, 3D printing and classical industrial manufacturing. Together, the Alliance members provide services, equipment, material, software and know-how to customers in the metal manufacturing industry.
ColdMetalFusion’s vision is to industrialize additive manufacturing through common standards in between sintering and additive manufacturing. ColdMetalFusion members does not only share standards, they also share the same culture and way of thinking. As “industrialists” with a long history, the members have a demanding requirement in terms of robustness and 24/7 operation of a factory. The joining of LÖMI is a tipping point to accelerate that vision for ColdMetalFusion. Together with other members, LÖMI will try to instill this thinking into joint system solutions from entry-level for application developers & innovators to fully automated factory lines.
LÖMI solvent debinding systems are available from 15 liters to 1.200 liters of batch loading volume, from tabletop units to fully automatic systems, and can be extended on a modular basis. This enables customers to increase the productivity while improving their efficiency by getting LÖMI -quality at an exceptional price/performance ratio.
This partnership aims to foster the adoption of AM mass production across industries including oil & gas, fashion, medical, chemical process engineering, automotive, and other industrial sectors. The combination of LÖMI’s expertise in solvent debinding and the ColdMetalFusion Alliance member’s 3D printing, sintering and industrial manufacturing experience promises to enable production series into the millions of high-quality, low-cost parts per year.
