Porite India adds new powder press and sintering furnace
July 27, 2021
Porite India Pvt Ltd, Pune, India, is expanding its Powder Metallurgy production line, adding a new 800 ton CNC powder compacting press and a new high-temperature (up to 1300 ºC) sintering and hardening furnace. The news follows on from the company’s recent acquisition of an EP 70 electric powder press from Dorst Technologies GmbH, announced in June.
Once installed, the company will have compacting presses ranging from 6 tons to 800 tons, with advanced CNC hydraulic systems, conventional and high-temperature sintering furnaces, sinter hardening and automatic sizing machines.
Both the powder compacting press and furnace are expected to be operational by the final quarter of 2021.
