Centorr Vacuum Industries expands its MIM furnace offering with new larger sizes for the medical market

November 11, 2009

Centorr Vacuum Industries expands its MIM furnace - 000807Centorr Vacuum Industries, based in Nashua, NH, USA, has expanded its furnace offering for the metal injection molding (MIM) market with the introduction of two full size MIM-Vac™ furnaces. New units will be built in 18x18x36 (450x450x900mm) size as well as an 18x18x48 (450x450x1200mm) size specifically for the production needs of the medical metal injection moulding market.

The new MIM-Vac M (modular design) has a number of design improvements including advanced Molybdenum hot zones with “wide-flow” gas-plenum retorts using our Sweepgas™ technology for consistent gas flow dynamics over all parts. It has a compact furnace layout with construction on a structural steel base for fast installation and easy hookup of all utilities, yet providing full access to major components for ease of maintenance, with no cumbersome panels to remove.

A Dry mechanical pumping system with CVI’s proprietary T/P (trap over pot) binder condensing trap provides clean and efficient handling of any binder, and the use of advanced Molybdenum alloys in the hot zone and retort offer excellent creep resistance, higher recrystallization temperatures, and longer service life. All systems include a flexible HMI design with CE certification.

Centorr Vacuum Industries is a high temperature vacuum and controlled atmosphere furnace manufacturer with an installed base of over 6000 units worldwide. Their furnace offering ranges from large commercial and production units with hot zones over 3m x 3m, to smaller Lab and Research & Development furnaces for use at temperatures over 3500°C. The company has a fully staffed Aftermarket Field Service group and Applied Technology Center offering R&D support and toll production service.
