Eisenmann SE, Böblingen, Germany, recently showcased its new One Solution high-temperature roller-hearth furnace at a special event at its facility in Bovenden, Germany. A number of guests from the Powder Metallurgy and sintering industries viewed the complete system, which included a return conveyer, in the company’s preassembly hall at Bovenden.

The One Solution furnace allows the roller-drive speed to be seamlessly and precisely adjusted to the specific needs of the product, and companies operating this furnace are said to be able to achieve substantially lower energy and industrial gas consumption. It also offers all the advantages of high-temperature sintering with rapid cooling and exact management of the atmosphere, with while delivering theoretically ideal sintering conditions of 1,400°C in conjunction with cooling rates of up to 8 K/s.

During the event, Peter Vervoort, Eisenmann’s Vice President, Product Development & Technology, spoke about the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA)’s ‘Vision 2025’, a publication designed to serve as a roadmap for the future of the PM industry. Martin Creutziger, Eisenmann’s Head of Test Center, provided visitors with an overview of the potential, security and technological possibilities of ‘future-oriented’ sintering technology.

Vervoort and Creutziger presented the key components and features of the new furnace and explained some of the ways in which Eisenmann has addressed the market need for highly efficient and flexible production. The One Solution high-temperature roller hearth sintering furnace range was said to offer outstanding advantages in terms of product quality, flexibility and operating costs.

Eisenmann SE employs a workforce of over 3,000 staff worldwide, operating at twenty-seven sites in fifteen countries across Europe, the Americas and the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China). In 2017, the company reported annual revenues of €723 million.
