CM Furnaces, based in Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA, is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year.


CM Furnaces builds both batch and continuous pusher furnaces

Founded in 1946 by Seth Combs and James Murphy, the company’s main focus was the production of refractory metal coils (molybdenum and tungsten) used in the lighting and the electronics industry. CM began manufacturing furnaces in order to produce the coils and over time the manufacture of high temperature laboratory and production furnaces became CM’s primary business.

Today, the company’s primary products are high temperature electric furnaces that can process parts in air, hydrogen and inert gasses. CM provides furnaces for powder metallurgy (PM), metal injection moulding (MIM), refractory metals, lighting, nuclear fuel, wire, ceramics, fibre optics, universities and research and development. 

Furnaces can be built in both batch and continuous pusher furnace configurations and to date, the company has produced over 4,500 furnaces. CM also offers a complete range of debinding ovens specifically designed to process MIM components produced with BASF CatamoldTM feedstock.
