Benefit: Improved Performance, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Automotive
Material: Stainless Steel


2C-Pin is the first serial part worldwide produced by Metal Injection Moulding of two different materials. A customer problem was solved: combination of wear resistance in a wide range of temperature and weldability of materials in one complex part. The innovation was to modify the two alloys to get nearly the same sintering behavior. Cracks are fully avoided and between the two components a continuous gradient in chemical composition instead of an abrupt joining zone can be determined. Schunk opend a new area for PM business with big growing potential.
