SGL Group will showcase its comprehensive range of graphite products suited for the heat treat industry at two trade shows in North America: At Powdermet 2017 running from June, 13th to June 16th at The Bellagio located in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and at the Mexico Heat Treatment Congress on June 14thin Queretaro, Mexico.
Powdermet is an annual event, bringing Powder Metallurgy (PM) industry experts from around the world for technical sessions, workshops and industry exhibits focusing on PM, particulate materials and metal additive manufacturing, SGL Group’s staff will be exhibiting at booth #124. Application Manager Jim McAllister will be presenting a technical session on Friday, June 16th at 9:30 am. At session 30, titled Surface Hardening & Modification, McAllister will be presenting on the use of CFRC material in oil quenching applications.
The Mexico Heat Treatment Congress is an annual event, bringing heat treatment (HT) industry experts to Mexico for technical papers, stand exhibits and networking events focusing on various heat treating applications. Application Manager Joe Labant will be presenting a technical paper on the use of CFRC material in oil quenching applications.
At both trade shows, SGL Group will be displaying a SIGRABOND® Performance grade, carbon-fiber reinforced carbon (CFRC) furnace fixture, which unlike the standard weave pattern style, can be used for oil quenching. Other featured products include; SIGRATHERM® soft and rigid felts, SIGRABOND® profiles, angles and heat shields, and SIGRAFINE® heating elements.
SIGRABOND® fixtures encompass excellent technical properties, as well as being lightweight, sturdy, and energy efficient. These systems are considerably lighter than typical competing options such as steel, molybdenum or nickel-chrome alloys; creating less thermal mass, quicker heat up and cool down cycles, increased load capacity and reduced energy costs. SGL Group’s product is proven to retain its shape and not show signs of fatigue or warping after hundreds of furnace cycles, preventing part distortion, increasing the lifetime and reducing the cost of ownership for the fixture.
The continuous adaption and improvement of SGL Group’s versatile customer-orientated specialty graphite solutions is part of the company’s path forward to foster megatrends like mobility, energy supply, and digitalization.
You’re kindly invited to visit the SGL Group’s booths at Powdermet and Mexico Heat Treat-ment Congress 2017. Our graphite teams will be pleased to address your questions concerning our product portfolio.
