PTI's new tank farm for MIM
New tanks help PTI to run its MIM lines uninterrupted.
From its 150,000-ft2 facility, PTI, founded in 1987 and owned by the Goldenberg family, serves a customer base across the aerospace, healthcare, commercial and military industries via injection molding of thermoplastics as well as metal injection molding (MIM). The new tanks provide the gases used during the sintering of injection molded metals during MIM. Product quality is enhanced by tank farms providing a cleaner gas supply versus bottled gas. In addition, an on-site tank farm allows the team at PTI to support uninterrupted sintering runs while avoiding frequent gas deliveries and bottle switchovers.

PTI reckons this new capability propels it into the top 20% of toll sinterers—industry wide—by adding this capability. According to a report prepared by BCC Research, the MIM market will see 14%/yr average annual growth through at least the middle of this decade. [email protected]
