The promoters are well-recognized for an industrial R&D career focused on injectable mixtures formulation, binder design and materials processing technologies, leading the first pilot plant for PIM manufacturing in Spain. After developing different formulations for MIM and CIM in the latest 10 years, Blesol has started commercial production of high quality, ready-to-use feedstocks. The company is specialized in feedstock production and supply, not only providing widespread PIM materials for the most popular applications, but also on-demand products for specialized applications according to customer specifications. Moreover, production has expanded to include highly-filled filaments, which are capable of the production of 3D printed parts in conventional and cost-competitive printers and are also available within a broad range of metals and ceramics. The green printed parts can undergo similar post-treatments than green PIM parts to reach the final metal or ceramic component.
Our portfolio includes stainless steels, tool steels, low alloy steels, superalloys, cobalt alloys, zirconia, alumina, steatites, cordierites and porcelains. At Blesol we create metallic and ceramic feedstocks based on different debinding systems: the catalytic system, the water-thermal system, the solvent-thermal system and the one-step thermal system.
Our mission statement is to expand the availability of PIM feedstocks suppliers in the market and to serve our customers in advanced manufacturing (PIM&3D) by offering superior quality products and services, with continuously upgrading technology, keeping cutting-edge facilities and equipment and recruiting a well-qualified staff.
Its senior staff members have been active in the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) and the Comité Español de Pulvimetalurgia (CEP-EPMA) associations, organizing conferences (VI National Conference in Powder Metallurgy and I Iberoamerican Conference in Powder Metallurgy), training workshops for the powder metallurgy community (EPMA Summer School) and regularly participates in different events organized by PIM-related companies (e.g. Arburg), the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) or the EuroPM and WorldPM conferences.
