Designed for metallic and nonmetallic materials, the press uniformly applies accurate pressure at elevated temperatures to all surfaces. The system densifies parts to heal casting defects and voids, bonds similar or dissimilar materials, and forms net or near-net shapes from metal, ceramic, cermet and graphic powders. With an inside diameter of 50 to 1,500 mm, the device contains pressures from vacuum to 3,000 bar and temperatures as high as 4,000oF (2,204oC). Heating elements come in oxygen-resistant, molybdenum and graphite styles. The unit also offers cascade control, fast cooling or uniform fast cooling to optimize heat/cooling rates.
