Ipsen partnered with an unnamed MIM manufacturer to improve the furnace’s technical features. The furnace operates 50/60 Hz, and at any voltage. The furnace’s sintering process benefits also include the ability to handle very high binder content in MIM applications and its batch processing is now competitive with continuous processing. By means of the TITAN DS’s automated protection system, binder build-up in pumps and piping is virtually eliminated. This allows for a reduced door-to-door cycle time with easier maintenance and care. The accurate control of the gas flow carries evaporated binder out of the hot zone and eliminates cross contamination.
 

The improved hot zone design, with additional front and rear heating elements, helps improve cleanliness and temperature uniformity while keeping energy efficiency at 30% more efficient than comparable models.
