Si3N4 Forming Rollers

Si3N4 Forming Rollers for plastic forming result in lower metal adhesion to the rollers, enhancing product quality.


Si3N4 Forming Rollers


Si3N4 silicon nitride forming rollers have already been applied in roll forming machines which allow complex variable sections to be manufactured, and performance a high profit.  Si3N4 Forming Rollers for plastic forming result in lower metal adhesion to the rollers, enhancing product quality.

In the five methods of silicon nitride production, GPSN is most commonly used to produce Si3N4 components. Here we introduce Gas pressure sintering (GPS):

Gas pressure sintering of silicon nitride is performed at a pressure of 1 to 10 MPa at a temperature of about 2000 ° C. The high nitrogen pressure suppresses the pyrolysis of silicon nitride. Due to the use of high-temperature sintering, it is sufficient to promote Si3N4 grain growth with the addition of less sintering aids, and obtain high-toughness ceramics with long columnar grains in situ growth density of> 99%. High toughness, high strength and good abrasion resistance can directly produce various complex shaped products close to the final shape, which can greatly reduce production costs and processing costs.

Packing of Silicon Nitride Forming Rollers


As a ceramic material, silicon nitride is quite fragile in a lot of cases. Our silicon nitride forming rollers are carefully handled to minimize damage during storage and transportation. Suitable outer boxes and inner cushioning materials are used for Si3N4products, vacuum packing is also engaged for some of the parts.
