At Formnext 2022, Incus GmbH, Vienna, Austria, and Micro MIM Japan Holdings Inc., headquartered in Osaka, Japan, signed a sales representative agreement which will expand Incus’s offering into Japan. With a detailed knowledge of the debinding and sintering process, Micro MIM is ideally positioned to support customers of Incus’ sinter-based Additive Manufacturing machines.
Established in 2019 by Dr Gerald Mitteramskogler, Incus provides solutions for the Additive Manufacturing of high-performance metals via a lithography-based metal manufacturing (LMM) technology, defined as a Vat Photopolymerisation process (VPP) by ISO/ASTM. This process is said to produce parts with high surface aesthetics and similar material properties found in Metal Injection Moulding.
Micro MIM Japan Holdings Inc is a MIM parts manufacturer specialising in the mass production of metal parts up to 30 mm in all dimensions.
In 2021, the companies entered into a partnership which provided an Incus Hammer Lab35 metal Additive Manufacturing machine to enable Micro MIM to produce functional prototypes and offer small runs of parts to its customers.
