Sintering is the process of using heat to turn powdered substances into solids without actually melting the material.

 

Benefits of sintered powder metallurgy (PM):

  • Cost effective
  • Provides excellent reproducibility and repeatability
  • Many features can be formed in tooling, thus eliminating or minimizing machining
  • Very high material to yield ratio
  • Wide variety of alloy systems and materials are available
  • Long term performance reliability
  • Excellent surface finishes
  • Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
  • Sustainability

About Compax Sintering:

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 thanĀ most of its competitors. A higher sintering temperature creates enhanced mechanical properties and significantly improves stainless steel materials.

COMPAX INC. Offers:

We offer belt, pusher, batch, sinter heat treat, draw (temper) furnaces, blackening, passivation and annealing. We haveĀ furnaces with capabilities up to 3000 degrees F (1650 C)
