WZR installs sinter furnace for metal AM

WZR Ceramic Solutions, Rheinbach, Germany, has installed a Carbolite Gero metal sintering furnace to advance its sintering programme. The new furnace will enable the company to parts produced using sinter-based metal Additive Manufacturing under inert gas, forming a gas and under vacuum up to 1600°C.

With this new addition to its in-house capabilities, WZR expects to see an improvement in its part quality; in particular, in its binder jetted stainless steel parts. The first project to utilize its new sintering furnace will be a customer project wherein the company will produce copper components by Material Extrusion (MEX) Additive Manufacturing.
