TAV Vacuum Furnaces SpA, Caravaggio, Italy, has produced a customised vacuum furnace for a research centre in the nuclear field. This furnace model TAV TH 35-40-35 is said to represent the most innovative solution for advanced ceramics and metallic parts produced by Additive Manufacturing.
The furnace project was developed, according to the client’s needs, to offer high temperatures up to 2,200°C and larger sizes than the standard furnaces used in the laboratory. Unlike the laboratory furnaces currently present on the market, the aim was to create a laboratory furnace using the standards normally applied in the industrial field.
The custom furnace offers a reduced footprint, enabling it to be installed in an office; an innovative compact cooling system; a reportedly fast cooling rate at all temperatures; a large-dimension pumping group for fast chamber evacuations and high-vacuum working levels; a high installed power, together with the geometric dimension of the resistor enabling fast heating and short cycles; and a computerised SCADA system, for complete control and installation supervision. The system was also said only to consume electrical energy as needed and to reduce both air and water pollution.
TAV Vacuum Furnaces’ R&D department is said to be working constantly to ensure a product which is tailored to customer needs, developing very challenging projects like the one above mentioned. Moreover, the company’s high degree of knowledge in vacuum engineering makes it capable of providing training and prompt assistance both for machinery maintenance and for each aspect related to the process technology.
