Profile Description

Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) (aka Field Assisted Sintering Technology (FAST))

SPS is an advanced sintering & bonding technique for all varieties of materials including metallic alloys, high-temp ceramics, high entropy alloys, and everything in between. Cal Nano provides powder consolidation and material bonding toll services via its multiple Spark Plasma Sintering Systems for everything from fundamental R&D to production. Parts can be sintered from sizes ranging from 10 mm to 6″ OD and max temperature of 2500 C. Cal Nano also has inert glove box handling capabilities for nanomaterials and powders sensitive to air/oxygen.

Cryogenic Milling

Cryogenic Milling is a cutting-edge powder processing technique used for particle size reduction (to nano scale), mechanical alloying and nano-grain refinement. This process is high energy attrition ball milling at cryogenic temperatures which provides unique benefits to traditional milling/mixing technology. Cal Nano provides toll services for R&D along with production and has multiple milling systems on-site.
