Hot Pressing Furnaces
Hot pressing involves the combination of added force during the sintering of high-temperature materials either in vacuum or a positive pressure of inert gas. This pressure on the compacted powder aids in the increased densification of the material resulting in a billet of material with densities close to theoretical.
Hot Pressing for Durable and Tight Bonds
In diffusion bonding applications, two dissimilar metals are placed in close proximity and then compressed under the combination of high-vacuum and heat, to ‘weld’ the materials together forming a durable and tight bond.
Eliminate the Need for Binders in the Manufacturing Process
Both styles of hot press furnace have both hot and cold rods for applying pressure and use either graphite punches and dies for holding the parts, or use pressing platens to exert the force during diffusion bonding.
By using the hot pressing technique, customers can eliminate the need for binders in their manufacturing process and instead use the combination of force and temperature to bond their parts completely.
