Flexible Molds for Cold Isostatic Pressing
1. Unleashing the Potential of CIP with Precision Molds
In the context of powder metallurgy, Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) remains a fundamental technique for achieving high-density powder compacts. It can be used where uniaxial pressing can not, to make homogeneous long aspect ratio pellets or with complex 3D shapes. A critical element in this process is the use of polyurethane molds, designed to provide the shape of the compacted powder.
2. The Crucial Role of Molds in CIP
Molds function as instrumental components in Cold Isostatic Pressing, primarily serving to provide structure and shape during the press stage. Their roles encompass ensuring a homogeneous distribution of powder and facilitating controlled compaction. The mold characteristics, including shape and dimensions, empowers the user with precise control over the ultimate geometry, density, and mechanical properties of the end product.
3. Customization for Diverse Needs
Our range of polyurethane molds can be made to suit your requirements. From molds with long aspect ratios and thin walls down to 2 mm, to those featuring flat geometries, rectangular or square configurations, and even intricate 3-dimensional designs – customization options abound. Incorporating steps or grooves further amplifies the utility of these molds within the Cold Isostatic Pressing framework.
4. Tailored Design Assistance
Recognizing that each customer often needs a slightly different solution, we can help you get to where you need to be. Whether crafting a singular bespoke mold or a series aligned with existing CIP equipment, precision in powder compaction is our shared objective.
5. Fast Turnaround Times with Patent Pending Mold-Making Method
