PROCESS OF THE MODELING
PRODUCTION PROCESS

1. Mix starting material

First, the desired powders or granules are selected and mixed in an appropriate ratio. Furthermore, the additional supply of a lubricant additive is possible here.

2. Forming

The mixed starting material is molded or pressed, forming the so-called “green body”. This corresponds now to the shape of the desired sintered product.

3. Compression

The now following high temperature treatment of the green body leads to an enlargement and fusion of the powder granules which significantly reduces the open porosity.

4. Cooling & Post-processing

After cooling, the post-processing takes place. If necessary, the part passes the process of a mechanical aftertreatment and surface finishing.

5. Final inspection

Without exception, we perform a visual inspection of all our casting products. The entire scope of all quality control related criteria and activities will be adjusted according to the customer’s requirements.

Fact sheet about Sintering Technology saying: "Did you know that since its creation in the eraly 1990s the sintering process is also known as laser sintering (LS) as back then all systems worked with lasers"

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE

When sintering, one uses the large surface energy of the powder and the fact that the system still strives for a state of lowest enthalpy for its purposes. If it is a technical molding, the powder mass is first pressed and adapted to the mould of the desired material. If, for example, stoneware or pottery are to be produced, molding is used instead of pressing, followed by drying. The cohesion of the powder particles can, if necessary, be reinforced by an additional binder before the green body is subsequently compacted and cured by heat treatment below the melting temperature.

ORIGIN

Sintering has been used since the invention of ceramics and is being constantly empirically refined. While the burning of porcelain is one of the oldest applications, sintered iron has become increasingly important due to the lack of copper during the Second World War. However, a systematic investigation of the sintering process did not start until the 1950s, when the production of metal components from powder molded articles began. The findings were then transferred to the handling of high-performance ceramics.
