PVA TePla AG, Wettenberg, Germany, announced that, at the end of 2022, it delivered the largest sinter-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) machine in the company’s three-decade history. The horizontally designed system features a usable length of 3600 mm.

The machine was delivered to a member of a large international hardmetal group and is operated at a production site in Italy. The customer is said to primarily use the machine for the sintering and HIPing of carbide rods, which are later processed into rotating tools for metalworking.

Since 1990, the company has supported manufacturing processes and technological developments in the semiconductor, hardmetal, electronics, and optical industries. Increasingly, PVA TePla’s focus has included forward-looking fields such as energy, photovoltaics and environmental technology. The company’s largest machine is said to have been built based on a desire to enable more sustainable carbide production.

The completion of commissioning and, thus, the handover to the customer, is planned to take place at the end of January 2023.
