Innovative systems based on decades of experience are the figurehead of Tisoma Anlagenbau und Vorrichtungen GmbH in Barchfeld-Immelborn.
When we speak of long-term experience and know-how of the company (founded in 1996) we mean the 40-year know-how of manufacturing of special machinery in hard metal production in the location Barchfeld-Immelborn.
The company was between 1972-1997 the so called Rationalisierungsmittelbetrieb und Sondermaschinenbau and a service company after 1989 in Immelborn. During this time the foundations for the production expertise of today's business has been established. TISOMA was launched after privatization in 1997 with 15 employees. Due to the increasing demand for products and the soaring orders in recent years we had to increase our personnel. Today, more than 35 highly qualified employees and modern production facilities guarantee for flexible and cost-oriented work for the customer.
Today we design and manufacture for customers throughout Europe, Russia and China in particular industrial furnaces, mills, double cone vacuum mixing dryer, machining centers for green parts and customized systems.
In the field of industrial furnaces, TISOMA mainly manufactures sintering furnaces, vacuum furnaces and inert gas furnaces up to a temperature range of 3000 degrees Celsius. Its uses range from the hard metal production, the ceramics industry, the powder injection molding (PIM), sintered metal manufacturing and general heat treatment installations.
The methods used include in particular are sintering, dewaxing, debinding and drying of carbide, sintered metal, ceramics, magnets and other powder metallurgy (MIM, CIM) and the heat treatment of various materials. The furnace atmospheres are adapted to the technological requirements and mostly inert gas atmospheres such as hydrogen, nitrogen, argon, or vacuum are applied. The oven heating can be manufactured with metallic (e. g. molybdenum; FeCrAl) or non-metallic (e. g. graphite) materials. The size and material of the working area are adapted to the heat treatment process and the batch sizes. The use of modern insulating materials ensures energy-optimized furnace rides. By incorporation of internal or external rapid cooling systems, it is possible to reduce the overall process time significantly.TISOMA’s developed and built CNC machining centers for the green part processing represent a technical masterpiece. In principle it is a carousel lathe having a high flexibility, which is especially designed for the application areas in the hard metal and ceramic industries and other areas of expertise. Pressed hard metal green parts or ceramic components can be turned, drilled and devour with driven tools, bumped and grinded. The green parts can be processed to a diameter of 1000 mm and ca. 1200 mm in length and weights up to 1000 kg and any tool system can be integrated on the machining center.
We have developed installations in close cooperation with users and customers, which are used for debinding and sintering of metal injection molding (MIM) and ceramic injection moulding parts (CIM). The demand for production parts, which are produced by these methods, promises in the coming years a significant increase. Through this technology, one is able to produce highly complex components extremely inexpensive. Its uses range from small series up to mass production products. This technology could also open up for manufacturers of plastic injection parts new markets and encouraging due of the prospects to such an investment.
The installations to the first-stage binder are designed in a way that it is possible to process MIM parts (feedstock) of various vendors. TISOMA’s technicians can design these systems as batch plants or as automated debinding intallations. The furnaces for residual debinding and sintering are also matched to the material quality of MIM parts. That means it can be used for sintered parts made of carbon steel as well as stainless steel parts, parts made of titanium or other high-quality alloys.
We develop our systems continuously. We ensure inter alia a steady development by constant exchanges within the MIM expert group. The MIM expert group consists of industrial companies and research institutes. MIM parts producers co-operate closely with powder and feedstock suppliers, as well as with injection moulding machine or furnace distributors and research facilities. The work of the MIM expert group focuses entirely on Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).[Source: http://www.mim-experten.de/en/mim-expertenkreis-en.html]
We provide information about our extensive range of equipment for thermal processes. We conducted successfully another Open House in late sommer. The manufactory in machinery and special plant engineering invites customers and business partners on a regular basis to show new project machines on their own premises. TISOMA Open House is an excellent way to examine individual projects prior to delivery end customer. The next Open House will take place soon.Here are a few images of our machines who already have been shown. All equipment can be manufactured for use in a laboratory, a technical center and production.
