Centorr Vacuum Industries, headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, announced it has received multiple orders for furnaces to be used in the Metal Injection Moulding and metal Additive Manufacturing sectors.

It was stated that Centorr will supply two of its Sintervac AM furnaces, a furnace specifically developed to meet the needs of the Additive Manufacturing process. The furnaces will be fitted with graphite hot zones and operate in vacuum, partial pressure or positive pressure of argon, nitrogen, or forming gas, depending on the binder. The machines also have a dual trapping system to handle the process offgassing from binder jetted parts.

The company added that it will be installing a new Sintervac AM furnace this year at its Applied Technology Center for customer process development and proofing runs. The unit will also be available for toll-work opportunities.
