Centorr Vacuum Industries

The MIM-Vac(tm) is the latest offering in the company's line of custom-engineered high-temperature vacuum/controlled atmosphere furnaces and is designed specifically for the Metal Injection Molding (MIM) market. The furnaces are a result of more than 10 years of experience in MIM technology and over 25 years debinding and sintering PM parts. The core design is based on Centorr's Workhorse(r) Metal Hot Zone furnaces, which have been sold worldwide for the sintering of powdered metals, and the binder removal technology of Sintervac(r) units developed for the tungsten carbide industry. The MIM-Vac is designed primarily for second stage binder removal and sintering, and has a number of design improvements specific for use with MIM feedstocks. (www.centorr.com)
