Thermal Technology’s spark plasma sintering (SPS) and DCS systems are designed with rigid four post press frames, an extra large working chamber and large access doors.

The power supply provides good adjustability and heat rates greater than 1500°C per minute. Digital servo valve controlled hydraulics ensure ultra-fine force control, while programming and data acquisition are accomplished using an on or off-line PC system.

Thermal Technology designs and manufactures crystal growing systems, hot presses and high temperature vacuum and controlled atmosphere laboratory and production furnaces for the advanced processing of metals, ceramics, glass, quartz and crystal growing applications.
