Inductive Hot Pressing
Inductive hot pressing is a consolidation method which can be seen as an alternative approach to direct hot pressing. With this process also high heating rates – compared to direct hot pressing – can be realized.
Besides using this technology for hot pressing, it can also be used for rapid sintering experiments (without applying mechanical pressure) as well as for first screening tests (small samples, 10 - 20 mm) if expensive raw materials are used.
Typical Process Parameters:
Heating rate: 100 - 200 K/min
Cooling rate: 100 K/min
Max. temperature: 2000° C
Mech. pressure: 30-50MPa
Atmospheres: Vac, Ar, N2, forming gas
