Diffusion Bonding Vacuum Hot Press
This versatile Diffusion Bonding Hot Press is an integrated system capable of exerting a force up to 200 tons in vacuum or controlled environments at temperatures up to 2400°F on parts heated in an effective hot zone 8" wide x 12" high x 20" long.
Water cooled rams and a cold wall resistance furnace are loacted within the vacuum chamber. External press frame supports chamber, vacuum, and hydraulic pumping systems. Saturable-core reactor power supply with solid state linear power control provides low voltage power to heating elements. Platens up to 8" x 20" in a variety of materials are easily attached to the rams. With the platens removed and the rams withdrawn, the system may be used as a general purpose high-temperature vacuum furnace.
