Cold Isostatic Press Applications

09/25/2015 8:37 AM

We have a Cold Isostatic Pressing System having 385 mm chamber diameter x 1550mm chamber height x 70,000 psi maximum pressure. Now a days we are making Alumina & Zirconia ceramics crucibles and other small parts in this pressing system. But we have much more spare capacity in this pressing system. Anyone can suggest any value added products which has good market potential, so we can utilise our this pressing system?

..." isostatic pressing is applicable in general only to small production quantities, typically less than 10,000 pieces annually. It is a more costly method than other PM processes due to its slow processing speed and the need for expendable tooling. Lastly, it is a near-net shape process technology suited to parts with much wider tolerance requirements than other PM processes can produce.

Typical Markets Using Isostatically Pressed Parts-aircraft, aerospace, military, medical, chemical processing"
