Incus GmbH, Vienna, Austria, reports that it has entered into a partnership with Micro MIM Japan Holdings Inc/Taisei Kogyo Co., Ltd., headquartered in Neyagawa, Osaka, Japan, and will provide a Hammer Lab35 metal Additive Manufacturing machine, based on Vat Photopolymerisation (VPP) technology, to help the company produce functional prototypes prior to Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) production and offer smaller quantities of parts.

The company explains that the good mechanical properties and exceptional surface aesthetics of lithography-based metal additively manufactured parts are the key factors driving the adoption of AM in the MIM community. The Incus metal AM machine is scheduled to arrive in Japan by the end of June 2021.

Established in 2019 by Dr Gerald Mitteramskogler, now CEO, Incus provides innovative solutions for the Additive Manufacturing of high-performance metals. Micro MIM Japan Holdings Inc is a MIM parts manufacturer specialising in the mass production of small metal parts up to 30 mm in all dimensions.

“Micro MIM Japan is glad to announce its introduction of this 3D metal printer by Incus GmbH, who will help us provide functional prototypes prior to Metal Injection Molding (MIM) production and offer smaller quantities of parts. We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation!” stated Izumi Nakamura, Business Development Director Europe & North America, European Representative Office Taisei Kogyo Co., Ltd/Micro MIM Japan Holdings Inc.

Gerald Mitteramskogler added, “The combination of surface aesthetics and green part strength makes our lithography-based printing approach the ideal technology for micro-scale parts. With Micro MIM we now have an ideal partner to scale up our 3D printing technology and introduce LMM to a production environment.”
