Sintering allows production of parts without melting and liquid casting processes, i.e., dealing with only powder or fine sand.
The compacted part is placed on a mesh belt or a tray and slowly moves through a furnace with a controlled atmosphere and temperature. The parts are heated below the melting point of the metals. The compacted particles of the part are changed from a mechanical bond between the particles into a metallurgical bond between the particles.
Compax has higher sintering capabilities than most of its competitors. A higher sintering temperature creates enhanced mechanical properties and significantly improves stainless steel materials.
