Capabilities

AVS fabrication capabilities can accommodate furnaces ranging in size from 4” diameter mini furnaces to hot zones 12 feet across and larger. AVS has in-house capabilities to fabricate graphite hot zones or metal hot zones including stainless steel, nichrome, inconel, molybdenum or tungsten. AVS manufactures furnaces for applications involving combinations of high temperatures to 3000°C, high vacuum to 10-6 torr, and gas pressures up to 3000 psig (200 bar). AVS hot presses have ranged from 5 tons to more than 2000 tons of hydraulic force. AVS furnaces are used for processes such as debind, MIM, vacuum sinter, pressure sinter, HIP, CIP, vacuum brazing, diffusion bonding, hydrogen burn-off, reducing, nitriding, induction melting, annealing, gas quench, hot press and vapor deposition. AVS stands alone, willing to build custom furnaces that enable customers to combine several processes for the most advanced, customer confidential applications.
