Sintering hub

Your partner for impove your sintering process

Services provided by Höganäs Sintering hub

Höganäs Sintering hub offers you sintering knowledge and capabilities to evaluate and optimise your process windows for different material concepts. Learn how to handle new and existing applications in the most cost-effective way. Our Sintering hub is equipped with different types of furnaces and atmosphere-measuring equipment and stays in close cooperation with Höganäs R&D centres.

Material data

We help you generate material data for various sintering conditions to help you choose the most suitable material and processing conditions.

Prototype sintering

We offer you prototype sintering capabilities at various conditions to optimise your sintering process and achieve required material performance at lowest total cost.

On-site furnace measurements

We offer furnace measurements at your site to evaluate your sintering conditions and propose means to maximise your sintering efficiency. We can evaluate the following:

  • Oxidation
  • Carburisation/decarburisation
  • Dewaxing conditions
  • Leaking
  • Sooting/blistering
