Sintering is a very old process used to manufacture an object from ceramic or metal powders, using the action of heat and/or pressure.
Mersen has an extensive engineering experience in different kind of sintering processes.
The modern industry has discovered many new applications for high-tech ceramics and powder metallurgy.
- High pressure sintering to manufacture diamond tools (saw segments, drill bits), ceramic armor plates.
- Sintering of SiC diesel particle filter.
- The new spark plasma sintering technique.
Many applications require the usage of our adapted graphite refractory tools to bear extreme process conditions of pressure and temperature.
