Nashua, NH, 24 July 2019–
Centorr Vacuum Industries announced it has shipped its new Sintervac AM™ furnace for the debind and sintering of additively manufactured parts for a leading firm in the 3D/Additive Manufacturing market space.
Centorr’s newest offering for the 3D printing / Additive manufacturing market is designed around its 2 cu ft furnace rated for operation to 1600°C. Centorr's graphite furnace design includes robust Graphite Tube and Block elements designed for long service life, with a 4-sided hot zone and integral graphite retort for excellent temperature uniformity. The retort also compartmentalizes the residual offgassing from binder-jet materials used during part production allowing them to be caught in the dual trapping system. The rigid graphite insulation design provides for long-term service even in the presence of process off-gassing and residual binder contamination. The trademarked Sweepgas® debind system allows for effective "sweeping" away of the process contaminants. Furnace control is via PLC/Programmable Controllers with Centorr's custom-designed HMI visualization interface.
Centorr Vacuum Industries Sintervac AM™ design is available in sizes of 2, 4.5, 9, 12, and 16 cubic foot volumes.
