At H.C. Starck Solutions, we have accrued significant expertise in tantalum, molybdenum, tungsten, and niobium-based powders as well as a broad spectrum of highly engineered furnace hardware (from simple trays and boats to complex hot zones, racks and other assemblies). With a diverse suite of engineering tools available to us, we employ advance modelling to develop design and manufacture custom solutions for specific products used in high temperature sintering or heat treating furnaces.

This presentation discusses the importance and role of manufacturing optimum Mo and W powders for MIM feedstock as well as design and modelling of furnace hardware for optimum performance and extended lifetime.
