MUT Advanced Heating GmbH, headquartered in Jena, Germany, is celebrating its 25th anniversary since it was founded by Heinz-Jürgen Blüm as the MUT company in September 1994, initially as a company focused on microwave environmental technology.

From its base in Jena, the company states that it initially concentrated on environmental technology projects and, as a result, shifted to thermal processing plants. It was then rebranded as MUT Advanced Heating GmbH in 2003, and has since concentrated on the development of the engineering and production of customised high-temperature furnace technology, both with defined atmospheres and under a vacuum. 

MUT believes that its consistent success is due to the systematic implementation of customised approaches to solutions in order to meet higher efficiency requirements and the associated increasing degree of automation in thermal installations. The company’s certifications (HPO authorisation, welding fabricator certification) for manufacturing pressure vessels enable it to define the optimal plant selection with its end customers, and guarantee performance on the basis of certified processes. 

Additionally, MUT stated that it is distinguished by its innovative approaches to thermal process technology, which are then implemented in system solutions in various material sectors, such as ceramics and Powder Metallurgy. There is also continuous interest in the ISO furnace series developed by H J Blüm. 

Due to advancing developments in the fields of materials, energy engineering, and production and process technology, the company recently introduced a new range of AM heat treatment products specifically to meet the demands of the new Additive Manufacturing techniques. 

Adapting to other advancements in the industry, in 2006, together with Element 22 GmbH, Kiel, Germany, MUT founded a joint venture company specifically for the growing titanium technology sector. The TiGen (Titanium Generation GmbH) company is jointly led by H J Blüm and M Scharvogel, CEO of Element 22 GmbH, and specialises in heat treatment and sintering plants for titanium materials and other reactive metals that have been produced by MIM, AM or other forming processes.

“We would like to give a hearty thank you to all our customers, partners, suppliers and employees for the trust and loyalty they have shown to us over past years,” the company stated in an anniversary statement. “The entire MUT team is looking forward to a continuation of such reliable and successful cooperation.”
