What Is Sintering?

Sintering is the bonding of adjacent powder particle surfaces in a mass of metal powders, or a compact, by heating. Also, a shaped body composed of metal powders and produced by sintering with or without prior compaction.

Other common names and related subjects are cold/hot isostatic pressing, liquid phase sintering and metal injection molding.*  

What Is a Sintering Furnace?

Sintering furnaces are key players in the sintering process. These ovens typically apply solid-state sintering methods to convert compact powders into thermally resistant molds. To achieve this result, metal sintering furnaces maintain temperatures below the powder’s melting point to shape rather than liquefy the material. This temperature causes the substance’s powder particles to bond and form a compact crystallized mass, increasing its strength and structural integrity.

Typically, batch furnaces are most suitable for sintering low-volume products, while continuous furnaces are useful for medium- to high-volume materials.
