Ceramic Injection Molding

Your need is our challenge. SPT is the technology leader in the development and manufacture of customized, high-precision parts using Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM).


We specialize in molding ceramics of small, complex & precise components with micron tolerances. We process materials such as alumina, zirconia, zirconia-hardened alumina and poly crystalline ruby and strictly follow their design specifications.

Application examples:

  • Nozzles with hole diameters ≥ 15µm and tolerances ≥ 1µm.
  • Medical tools & implants
  • Dental applications
  • Industrial and electronic components

Ceramic Injection Molding Process


The CIM process uses injection molding and sintering techniques to produce complex parts with very hard materials that would be too difficult, too expensive or even impossible to produce using conventional methods. The injection molding process can also be used to join components that previously required costly subsequent assembly.

Ceramic Materials

With a broad definition, all inorganic, non-metallic materials can be called ceramics. In other words, everything that cannot be assigned to plastics or metals is considered ceramics


"Advanced ceramics have very positive mechanical properties, such as high density, high hardness and extreme resistance against wear. Good design control can add strength to control risks of fracture."

Reduced fracture strength is a characteristic whose risks can be well controlled in terms of design.

SPT has decades of experience in the field of technical ceramics

Technical ceramics have become a trendy material in many industries today in terms of performance, durability and aesthetics. The properties of most ceramic materials are suitable for a wide range of applications.
Upon request, our materials can be qualified according to international ISO or ASTM standards.
