3D-Printing Integrated Manufacturing System – Combining Additive Manufacturing and PIM

2 December 2019

DTU Lyngby
Meeting Room 1
Anker Engelundsvej 1
2800 Lyngby

Are you seeking for technologies to fabricate products with complex geometry? Are you interested in using additive manufacturing to produce mould for injection moulding? Not only in polymer injection moulding, but also in metal or ceramic powder injection moulding. Do you need inspirations to applications of additive manufacturing by knowing the state of the art?

By combining PIM with AM in a sensible way, parts can be realized by PIM but have considerably increased complexity and can be produced with cheap moulds, thus enabling an economical production of small series in production quality.

This seminar will provide insight into the entire process chain of lost-Form powder injection moulding, from 3D printing, post processing, PIM, demolding, to debinding and sintering. A number of speakers from leading companies and academic institutes will present their research and technologies relevant to this process.

Freeform injection molding

Lasse Staal, CEO, Addifab ApS


Lasse Staal, co-founder of Danish start-up AddiFab, is an engineer turned entrepreneur with extensive hardware and software development experience. A passionate believer in the transformative potential of Additive Manufacturing (AM), he is equally passionate about removing the key limitations that prevent AM from becoming a cornerstone of global manufacturing.

Producing high-precision parts with polymeric mold materials

Uffe Bihlet, Project Manager, Addifab ApS

The powder injection moulding industry is based on large volume production of high-precision parts. Using polymer moulds as those offered by the FIM concept (Freeform Injection Molding), small volume and even custom part production is possible, but the precision should be as high as that obtained for large volume production to cater to the industry. This talk covers some of the key parts of the journey towards that goal.

Uffe Bihlet holds a PhD in Materials Science and is Project Manager of a Horizon 2020 grant at AddiFab. Prior to this, he was Team Leader at FORCE Technology and Research Engineer at MAN Diesel & Turbo.
