Copper-chromium pellets made from micro-size powders have been sintered in vacuum and nitrogen low pressure by a reliable and straightforward induction sintering setup. Several specimens compacted at 4 MPa and 10 MPa were sintered at different temperature cycles. This work presented the sintering furnace configuration, performance characterization while cross-linking the pellet dimensions and mass, densification, and hardness of the sintered specimen. The low-pressure environment offered a protective atmosphere for the sintering process. In addition, copper/chromium (core/shell) pellets were fabricated to compare under induction heating the phase formation at temperatures close to the eutectic composition of the studied materials.
