Currently PSI delivers the most intense continuous muon beam in the world with up to few 10^8 μ+/s. The High Intensity Muon Beam (HiMB) project aims at developing a new target station and muon beam lines able to deliver up to 10^10 μ+/s, with a huge impact for low-energy, high-precision muon based searches.

This is done by boosting the surface muon production efficiency with a new target geometry and increasing capture and transmission with a solenoid-based beam line. The latter affects also the rates of the other particles produced at target making the beam lines suited also for non-surface muon beams. We present the current status of the HiMB project.
