Centorr Vacuum Industries (CVI) has expanded its furnace offering for metal injection molding (MIM) with the introduction of two full-size MIM-Vac™ furnaces. New units will be built in 18 x 18 x 36 in. (450 x 450 x 900 mm) size, as well as an 18 x 18 x 48 in. (450 x 450 x 1200 mm) size specifically for the production needs of the medical MIM market.

The new MIM-Vac M (modular design) features a number of design improvements, including advanced molybdenum hot zones with “wide-flow” gas-plenum retorts using CVI’s Sweepgas™ technology for consistent gas flow dynamics over all parts. It has a compact furnace layout with construction on a structural steel base for fast installation and easy hookup of all utilities. The unit provides full access to major components for ease of maintenance, with no cumbersome panels to remove.

A dry mechanical pumping system with CVI’s proprietary T/P (trap over pot) binder condensing trap provides clean and efficient handling of any binder, and the use of advanced molybdenum alloys in the hot zone and retort offer excellent creep resistance, higher recrystallization temperatures and longer service life. All systems include a flexible HMI design with CE certification.
