Carbolite Gero joins the ColdMetalFusion Alliance to unite the sintering & AM industry around robust manufacturing standards

Carbolite Gero – a leading global manufacturer of high temperature furnaces and ovens from 30°C to 3000°C – joins the ColdMetalFusion alliance to provide sintering furnaces, services, and know-how. Carbolite Gero has over 80 years’ experience in manufacturing thermal engineering products with a recent emphasis on reduced energy consumption. By joining ColdMetalFusion, Carbolite Gero is committed to uniting the Sintering & Additive Manufacturing Industries by standardizing furnaces and supporting customers with their pilot-plant facilities and their high volume manufacturing sites worldwide.

Neuhausen, Germany – Carbolite Gero GmbH & Co.KG, has confirmed today that they have joined the ColdMetalFusion Alliance along with other major industry players. Carbolite Gero and other Alliance Members are looking to create synergies and break down barriers for customers. The company’s involvement will enable customers to benefit from Carbolite Gero’s expertise which is founded on decades of experience in vacuum and special atmosphere sintering – technologies that only a few market players have mastered. At the same time, Carbolite Gero intends to work together with the ColdMetalFusion members to simplify the manufacturing chain and to give customers easy and secure access to the otherwise complex world of sintering. Beyond that, Carbolite Gero will collaborate with ColdMetalFusion customers from pilot-plant production to high volume manufacturing sites.

Carbolite Gero’s solutions are utilised in many powder metallurgy manufacturing processes such as thermal/catalytic debinding, drying of parts after solvent debinding, stress relieving, and, of course, sintering in an inert gas, hydrogen or a vacuum.

ColdMetalFusion is an alliance of industry leading organisations with decades of experience in the fields of sintering, 3D printing and classical industrial manufacturing. Together, ColdMetalFusion Alliance members provide services, equipment, materials, software and know-how to customers in the metal manufacturing industry.

Dr. Timm Ohnweiler from Carbolite Gero is keen to stress that “Over the past 80 years Carbolite Gero has become a global leader in industrial and laboratory oven and furnace solutions through a continuous effort to manufacture high-quality solutions with a current focus on energy efficiency. Cutting edge technologies in our solutions provide customers worldwide with a competitive advantage and a significant return on investment”.

“Through the ColdMetalFusion Alliance we hope to deliver an increased robustness to sinter based Additive Manufacturing and directly address on of the most pressing topics in the market today – high scrap rates!”

Roberto Matteis, Managing Director at Carbolite Gero is on record saying that “We believe the ColdMetalFusion Alliance will grow our market by cementing the ties between the Sintering & Additive Manufacturing Industries”.

As “industrialist specialists” with significant experience, the ColdMetalFusion Alliance Members have a deep understanding of the requirements for 24/7 operation in this sector. They anticipate future success by bringing together different organisations in this sectors supply chain, seamlessly connecting customers and prospects to trusted suppliers - The ColdMetalFusion Alliance partners.

At the Formnext exhibition in November in Frankfurt, Germany, ColdMetalFusion Alliance members will demonstrate the Alliance’s mission of industrialization. Carbolite Gero will be present and exhibiting high temperature furnaces and ovens in hall 12.0 on booth D121, while customers can visit the ColdMetalFusion Alliance in hall 11.1 at booth D48.
