Höganäs has invested in a new sintering furnace to meet the growing demand for 3D printed components and additional material alternatives, it says.

The investment will make it possible to manufacturer more metal components using Höganäs' Digital Metal 3D printing technology.

The high temperature furnace offers variable sintering atmosphere settings and precise adjustment of temperature profiles, crucial to the sintering of high quality metal components.

‘The new furnace has significantly increased our production capacity and we are also able to sinter a wider range of metal powders,’ said Ralf Carlström, general manager for additive manufacturing at Höganäs.
