Shimadzu Review 78[1・2] (2021)


In a heat treatment furnace that sinters cemented carbide and ceramics, improving the sintering yield for high-precision tools requires rapid and uniform cooling of treated materials in the effective sintering zone of the furnace. This article describes a uniform rapid cooling furnace (PHSG-U) developed by Shimadzu Industrial Systems that improves the temperature distribution width during cooling to 1/3 the previous furnace model.
