RHP-Technology GmbH & Co. KG, Austria

More than 15 years ago the Austrian Institute of Technology started a working group on powder metallurgical technologies. One of the main activities right from the beginning was the use of hot-press technologies for material development. In the last years the groups work force has been strengthened and new process equipment has been installed. On 1st of October 2010 the working group started as independent spin-off company RHP-Technologies GmbH & Co. KG.
RHP Technology - Rapid Hot Pressing Technology is a strongly technology driven company making use of advanced hot press technologies to develop and produce sophisticated products.
RHP acts as "Solution Provider in Hot-Pressing Technology".
On mid-term the company will enter into production and sales of special-purpose solutions. The introduction of advanced hot-pressing technology, especially the "direct heated hotpressing" allows the synthesis of a large spectrum of materials.
RHP has the only production scale facility in Europe that is capable to synthesize materials at temperatures of up to 2.400°C within cycles less than one hour.
Therefore RHP is a favorable R&D partner to develop new materials and technologies.
RHP will contribute to μFCU with their know-how in hot pressing technology especially with diffusion bonding. RHP already developed a mostly similar process for copper base plates.
