Perfect vacuum sintering step by step #2

From mass production to laboratory applicative research, when it comes to vacuum sintering, a number of questions can arise. I mean, doubts regarding the thermal insulation, the gas fluxing, loading and unloading operations, and so on. In this second part, I will try to solve any doubt you may have related to hot zone for vacuum sintering furnaces, the distribution of gas flow, and the use of furnace box for loading and unloading sintered parts and components.
