Laboratory heat press
Summary:
Laboratory heat press is a unique device developed by established Slovak research institute. The device enables preparation of dense ceramic and other materials by sintering of powders. Manufacturing process is rapid, economical, highly efficient and suitable even for smaller laboratories. Energy savings up to 77% per sample are guaranteed. Partners are sought for acquisition and/or licensing agreement.
Description:
Unique new device for energy efficient but highly effective manufacture of dense ceramic and other materials is introduced. Preparation of materials is based on a process of sintering of powders simultaneously exposed to high temperatures (up to 2100 °C) and axial pressure (up to 40 MPa) in an inert atmosphere or in vacuum. The design of the furnace even allows achieving a slight overpressure of inert gas (nitrogen, argon). Construction of the proposed heat press ensures very fast heating rate with sufficiently long period of homogeneous temperature and highly accurate measurement of the real temperature of the sample.

Previously known processes of preparation of dense ceramic (and other) materials for the purposes of research and development were based on energetically demanding devices and a time consuming sintering process. This way, the price of the prepared sample was several times higher than samples prepared by above mentioned Laboratory heat press. The size of the resulting samples is sufficient for full characterization of prepared material in terms of functional properties, as well as the chemical and phase composition. Laboratory heat press is developed by internationally renowned research team and was awarded with bronze medal at the 2012 international invention show.

Technical properties:
· Max. operating temperature: 2100 °C
· Max. heating rate: 100 °C/min up to 1400 °C
50 °C/min up to 2100 °C
· Max. sample diameter: 20 mm
· Max. height of sample: 10 mm
· Max. load: 40 MPa
· Atmosphere: vacuum, Ar, N2

The laboratory heat press opens up new markets, as this type of technology has been in the past for its financial, spatial and material demands mainly used by large companies. The device enables economical, rapid and highly efficient creation of samples for material testing suitable even in conditions of smaller laboratories. Properties of the heat press suggest the possibility of low- and high-temperature applications in:
· Engineering
· Metallurgy and foundry
· Automotive industry
· Power engineering
· Chemistry
· Robotics
· Medicine
· Aeronautics

Inventors are looking for dealers/distributors to sell technology to the end users or an opportunity for licence agreement.
