Thermal Technology recently announced it has designed and manufactured a 50-ton hot press for a northern California manufacturer of analytical instrumentation. The system will be used for diffusion bonding of highly advanced sensors. 

The hot press, model HP100, offers a large usable workspace with a four-side molybdenum hot zone rated to 1600°C. The press operates in an inert gas, high vacuum or partial pressure environment.

Thermal Technology’s model HP100-121214M provides a 12-in.-cube work area with a convenient front and rear door loading configuration, permitting direct and unrestricted access to the work area. This system reportedly offers precision force control and displacement measurement with accuracy of better than 0.5% of reading. The control system uses the Honeywell HC900 hybrid controller and advanced HMI software to provide automatic turnkey batch control and data acquisition.

“This high force system offers production-scale capacity with precision control and repeatable performance,” said Matt Mede, president and CEO of Thermal Technology. “The HP100 provides upgraded force and atmosphere controls that present the customer with unique processing capabilities, leading to new technological possibilities.”
