Rectangular powder compaction die.

Rectangular powder compaction die.

Rectangular powder compaction die.

Hello Everybody,

I am fabricating glass+ceramic samples by powder compaction method. I have a cylindrical die that I am using for making pellets of 5.00mm thickness and 13.00mm diameter. However, I am looking for a rectangular powder compaction die wherein I can make bars of 2.5" length with 5-10mm thickness. Can anyone of direct me to a vendor whole sell such type of die? Anything more than 2.5" length would do.

Thanks and your help is much appreciated

RE: Rectangular powder compaction die.

What material are your die liners? Tool steel? Carbide? Ceramic?
How wide do you want them?
In hard materials these are usually segmented dies that are held in a steel case.
