For defined atmospheres

07/10/2018 - Many methods of additive manufacturing require subsequent heat treatment of the manufactured components. At the Formnext 2018 Nabertherm presents its new hot-wall retort furnaces. The new models of have been especially adapted to the common construction platforms of printer manufacturers, as Nabertherm says.

These gas tight retort furnaces are equipped with direct or indirect heating depending on temperature. According to the manufacturer, they are suited for various heat treatment processes requiring a defined protective or a reaction gas atmosphere. These compact models can also be laid out for heat treatment under vacuum up to 600 °C.

The furnace chamber consists of a gas tight retort with water cooling around the door to protect the special sealing. With the corresponding safety technology, retort furnaces are also suitable for applications under reaction gases, for inert debinding, or for pyrolysis processes.

At the Formnext show, Nabertherm presents the new furnace NR 80/11.
