Spark Plasma Sintering


Santa Rosa, CA April 28, 2008 -- Thermal Technology LLC, is now producing Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) technology. SPS is an ultra high-tech, high speed, low temperature compaction/sintering process. It’s similar to hot press technology, but instead of using radiant heat, it passes high amperage pulsed DC current directly through the sample material producing unique particle bonding properties. Benefits of SPS include: single press, full density capability; controllable porosity; exceptional grain growth and microstructure control; wet and dry phase sintering and bonding; high homogeneity; net and near-net powder to part processing; functionally graded materials; ease of operation; and low operational cost

Robert Aalund recently joined Thermal Technology as business development manager specializing in the SPS market. Aalund’s 22 years of industry experience include international spark plasma sintering marketing and business development of high-tech manufacturing technology.

“SPS is consistent with our organizational interests and engineering abilities. We absolutely can build a world class SPS product line,” says Thermal Technology CEO and president, Matt Mede. “This is a technology with certain promise, and we’re going to play a major role in developing that promise.”

Thermal Technology’s approach to SPS is founded in innovation, quality, affordability and support. Consistent with Thermal Technology’s reputation, their SPS systems will be designed to exceed their client’s expectations for quality and reliability.

Thermal Technology stands behind their products throughout the development, engineering and service process and will assist clients in integrating their SPS equipment into an active production system.
