WZR Ceramic Solutions, Rheinbach, Germany, has installed a Carbolite Gero metal sintering furnace to advance its sintering programme. The new furnace will enable the company to parts produced using sinter-based metal Additive Manufacturing under inert gas, forming gas and under vacuum up to 1600°C.

With this new addition to its in-house capabilities, WZR expects to see an improvement in its part quality; in particular, in its binder jetted stainless steel parts. The first project to utilise its new sintering furnace will be a customer project wherein the company will produce copper components by Material Extrusion (MEX) Additive Manufacturing.

WZR Ceramic Solutions was founded in 1996 and adopted Additive Manufacturing as a solution in 2004. Since that time, the company has chiefly worked on ceramic AM under the name CerPrint®, but has recently expanded into sinter-based metal AM.
