Mii Technologies Enters Ceramic Manufacturing
August 29, 2001
Mii Technologies, LLC has expanded the use of its award-winning powder metal manufacturing technology to produce complex-geometry parts from ceramic material. Using the same fully digital system that has won Mii success in the metal arena, the company has demonstrated manufacturing parts from ceramic material with strikingly higher density (at 50 TSI in initial production runs, with a potential of 65 TSI), extraordinary mechanical uniformity and at net-shape standards not approached before. Mii's new compaction system, embodied in a set of presses that are available 12 to 20 weeks after receipt of order, won a grand prize for outstanding application for powder metallurgy from the Metal Powder Industries Federation for its first commercial part.
