LÖMI introduces new debinding furnace for debinding with organic solvents and water in one system

April 26, 2013

German debinding furnace manufacturer LÖMI has presented a new furnace that is capable of debinding with both organic solvents and water in one system. The new model, EDA-50LW, is the first of its kind in the industry and meets the increasing demand from new PIM producers wishing to easily enter the market as well as from established producers wishing to diversify their processes.

LÖMI’s Ralf Wegemann told PIM International, “Our new furnace is available as a test or rental system so that PIM producers can test their processes at the LÖMI pilot plant stations or in their own company with a rental furnace. In this way, PIM producers can try out new kinds of feedstock and/or binder systems or optimise their existing processes, using both organic solvents and water to debind their green parts. Should a PIM producer later decide to puchase a new debinding furnace, LÖMI will customise the furnace to the producer’s process, based on the test results. The costs for the rental system can be credited to the new investment.”

The company has many years of experience in the PIM industry and all their furnaces are developed in close cooperation with feedstock manufacturers and PIM part producers. The new furnace, states the company, is technically mature and robust and comes in a stainless steel design. It offers a closed system, making it environmentally beneficial. The furnace features an integrated drying of parts, saving time and costs, as no additional handling of the brown parts is required between debinding and drying. The integrated solvent recovery ensures a fresh debinding agent at all times. The furnace is ergonomically designed as a front-end loader, and a large variety of trays and loading carriages are available in order to save time during the production process.
