GeniCore, Warsaw, Poland, showcased its new U-FAST sintering system at the recent Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition in Bilbao, Spain. The system uses a Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) technology, producing electric pulses of under 1 ms.

In Genicore’s U-FAST (Upgraded Field Assisted Sintering Technology) method, the energy source is an impulse power supply with an operating voltage similar to that used in FAST or SPS type sintering. It can be used to sinter metal materials up to a maximum temperature of 2500°C, with a maximum pressing force of 350 kN.

U-FAST sintering can reportedly be used to produce high performance ceramics, metal matrix composites, super hard materials, functionally gradient materials and MMC composites with uniform microstructure and good physical properties.

Other products offered by GeniCore include innovative materials, such as Diamond Enhanced Cemented Carbide (DEC), produced using its Pulse Plasma Compaction (PPC) sintering method. DEC is described as a super hard material with a very high hardness to impact resistance ratio.

GeniCore solutions are used by customers in the tooling, power, electronics, automotive and firearms industries. The company stated that it is focused on establishing long-term cooperation with clients globally, including further development of its sales and service network.
