Ecrimesa Group has taken an important step towards modernising its quality and management processes. Faced with the need for a more efficient system, we have implemented new software that significantly improves management in key sectors such as automotive and aerospace. In this article we examine the details of this transition and how it is impacting

The installation of robotic systems has gained esential relevance in industry 4.0, characterized by the integration of digital technologies and automation in production processes. An example of this evolution is the Robotized Installation for Wax Assembling in Investment Casting technology that we have integrated at Ecrimesa Group. In this context, automation not only improves productivity,

At Ecrimesa Group, we understand that the key to the complete satisfaction of our customers lies in a constant evolution and adaptation to their needs. And the commitment begins with commercial attention. In 2021 we began the implementation of a CRM. This tool, developed in collaboration with technology experts, is designed to optimize interaction with

In the current industrial environment, connectivity stands as a fundamental column to enhance efficiency and competitiveness in factories. As we acquire “smart” machinery, a question appears: how to connect still functional, but older analog facilities? In this article, we will share our experience in developing our own connectivity solutions in our industrial facilities.  In the

Summary of the different properties of the MIM and its various utilities in Ecrimesa.

Digitization working sheets

The digitization of guidelines or process sheets is a key project that we have carried out in Ecrimesa Group. This internal project, framed within the Industry 4.0 actions, aims to improve our efficiency and productivity. Before, operators printed and took the process sheets and standards necessary for their work, which resulted in an excessive use

Locksmith industry has historically been a potential sector for our technologies, both in INVESTMENT CASTING and in MIM technology, but it is especially in this last one where the increase in recent years has been more important, positioning itself as one of the main manufacturing markets today. Why is the locksmith sector growing? On the

The last December number of PIM International magazine, includes a Case Study prepared by our technical director, Manuel Caballero. In the article, Manuel Caballero reviews a conversion process in which a die-cast zinc hinge set is redesigned for production with MIM in 316L stainless steel, improving significantly mechanical properties.  Die casting is a widely used

Even though the investment casting is an industrially fully developed process, its limits have been pushed during the last years towards producing larger and more complex pieces compared to the last decades.  The following image shows the market positioning and development tendency of investment casting:  On the one hand, larger production volumes are being outsourced more

What is additive manufacturing?  Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing or rapid prototyping, is the fabrication of metal parts by using a 3D model and applying several layers of material to it.  Fabricating metal parts through additive manufacturing has become one of the most interesting technologies of the sector throughout the last decade –


Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) is a suitable technology to fabricate small or medium-sized pieces with complex geometry. A variety of materials can be used (stainless steels, low-alloy steels, soft magnetic, tooling steel or ceramic materials). MIM combines the technique and versatility of plastic injection with sintering in order to fabricate metal pieces with high density

Investment Casting

Investment casting is among the oldest industrial manufacturing processes still being applied today. Its history can be traced back to 4,000 BC. At this time, bee wax and other animal greases were used instead of synthetic waxes employed today. Samples of sculptures crafted with investment casting have been found in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South
