Characteristics of spark plasma sintering technology

Rapid sintering:

The heating rate can reach more than 500 ℃/min. The sintering time is significantly less than that of traditional sintering methods such as hot pressing, HIP and pressureless sintering.

Wide range temperature sintering:

Sintering temperature covers the high temperature field from low temperature to 2400 ℃

Purification & Activation Sintering:

Particle surface purification effect (removal of adsorbed gas & oxide film) and particle surface activation effect to achieve sintering of difficult-to-sinter materials

density control sintering:

From porous body to dense sintered body, density control is free and easy

Fine grain sintering:

Rapid heating inhibits grain growth and regulates the microstructure to prepare the required sintered body (one of the best ways to prepare nanocrystalline materials)

temperature gradient sintering:

Fabrication of temperature gradients (hundreds of °C/mm) in the mold to achieve simultaneous sintering of materials with different melting points (one of the best ways to prepare functionally graded materials)
