Re: Hot Sintering available

Sat Feb 11, 2012 2:07 am

I have access to a hot sinter machine.  Sintering is a method used to create objects from powders.  For instance a case or mold.  We are currently making diamond tool tips and specialize in working with extremely durable metals like tungsten.

Any thoughts how we can get into this field?

How expensive is the process. I have a small injection molder, and as has been suggested else where a case made from recycled plastics might be an idea. The molder has a 12 gram shot, so item and sprue has this as maximum weight and volume, but it could be more than one mold.

I am looking at this as an interesting project not a money earner I might add.

Tell us more about your process ?

If anyone fancies a real world modding project, it would be great to convert my relay controlled 1970"s molder into a Raspi controlled machine. Touch screen with the different temperature profiles and timings for molds and plastics used.
