Harper and Ferrite Partner on Microwave Solutions for Materials Processing

02 May 2017

Harper International and Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) have formed a strategic relationship under which Harper will utilise FMT’s high power microwave heating technology to complement its product portfolio of traditional gas and electric fired furnaces.

FMT has several patented microwave technologies that enable advanced microwave field distribution across a wide variety of materials. Harper will integrate FMT’s heating technology into its furnace systems. Since commercial microwave use requires material specific equipment, matching the engineering and design capabilities of FMT with Harper’s furnace systems will provide customers a distinct advantage for their unique processing requirements, Harper reports.

“Our cooperation with FMT is aligned with our commitment to provide customers with the ideal thermal processing method for their material production," states Charles Miller, President of Harper. "Microwave can be a highly efficient and effective solution for a range of materials including ceramic and metal powders. To provide our customers with an expanded solution set via world class microwave components inside our proven furnace systems is a winning combination.”

“Teaming up with Harper gives us access to material processing capabilities and expertise that will enable us to solve more complex heating problems for our customers," says Peter Tibbetts, CEO, FMT. "At FMT, we constantly strive to advance the science of industrial microwave processing. Partnerships with industry leaders like Harper open up new avenues of advancement that are very exciting.”
