Cold isostatic press
The cold isostatic press KIP is a helping tool for densifying rods of oxidic, or in general, ceramic materials. The isostatic pressing hereby avoids the problem of uniaxially pressed rods, like longitudinal cracking, and leads to a more homogeneous density. A further advantage is the near circular cross-section of the resulting rods, especially for using them in optical floating zone furnaces like HKZ or TKZ. The KIP provides pressures > 200 Mpa, so that even materials which are difficult to densify can be pressed.
