Sensor Housing
Benefit: Improved Performance, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding


Part was previously produced in plastic, but more demanding requirements led to the consideration of a solution in metal. There was a wish for greater strength because the sensor housing is primarily used for industrial purposes in environments that degrade plastic materials both thermally and chemically. With the technology behind MIM, we were able to produce a sensor housing with the same geometry as plastic, but with the same strength as steel. The entire sensor housing is produced as a single component – in a single process. The sensor housing is fitted into a flow pipe that is used to measure flow and pressure in pipe systems. The housing is used to protect and enclose the electronics for the measurements.
