Spark Plasma Sintering Machine
Spark Plasma Sintering(SPS) is used for compacting metallic, ceramic or metal-ceramic powders to form a pellet. SPS does not need a binder and achieves high density at reduced sintering temperature and time. The powder sample is filled into a graphite die through which current is passed and the resulting pellet is a material with better mechanical properties.
