“The SPHERIC/SYNO-THERM line represents the state-of-the-art in industrial microwave design,” said Spheric Technologies President Joseph Hines. “Asia is far more advanced than the U.S. in the use of microwave sintering systems,” which are used to form complex industrial parts by heating (below the melting point) metal or ceramic powders until they adhere. Microwave furnaces typically use up to 80% less energy than conventional sintering units, producing in as little as one-tenth the time stronger, finer-grained parts, with less deformation and cracking, according to a report by Penn State and Japan’s National Institute for Fusion Science.
Spheric Technologies is marketing advanced SPHERIC/SYNO-THERM furnaces together with sublicenses for microwave sintering based on technology patents developed by Penn State’s world-recognized Microwave Processing and Engineering Center.
