MUT Advanced Heating GmbH, headquartered in Jena, Germany, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Founded by Heinz-Jürgen Blüm in September 1994, the company originally focused on environmental technology before moving into thermal processing. It was then rebranded as MUT Advanced Heating GmbH in 2003, and has since concentrated on the engineering and production of high-temperature furnace technology, both with defined atmospheres and under vacuum.

Increasing demands on the materials sector lead to increasingly complex manufacturing processes, the company states. Developments in materials science have fundamentally changed the required thermal processes. To meet these needs, MUT builds customised systems offering higher efficiency, as well as the associated degree of automation now required in many thermal installations. 

The company’s certifications for manufacturing pressure vessels (HPO authorisation and welding fabricator certification) also enable it to define the optimal plant selection with its customers, and guarantee performance on the basis of certified processes.

MUT has customers in the glass and ceramic, metalworking, Powder Metallurgy, carbon and chemical industries. The company designs systems for modern processes in sintering, debinding, joining techniques, heat treatment of aggressive substances as well as in the areas of high pressure and hot gas. A joint venture with Element 22 GmbH in 2006, creating TiGen (Titanium Generation GmbH), also provides solutions for the titanium sector that include heat treatment and sintering plant for titanium and other reactive metals that have been produced by MIM, AM or other forming processes.

A new range of heat treatment products, specifically developed to meet the demands of Additive Manufacturing processes, have also been introduced. These include suitable furnace technology for powder processing, debinding and sintering as well as for heat treatment. “Even after 25 years, we are still taking on new challenges that accompany advancing developments in the fields of materials, energy engineering, and production and process technology,” the company stated.

“We would like to give a hearty thank you to all our customers, partners, suppliers and employees for the trust and loyalty they have shown to us over past years.”
