The present article describes salient features of an uniaxial hot press designed and fabricated for laboratory use. A simple lever and pulley mechanism using dead weights is employed to load the sample placed in the graphite die heated by induction. The unit is useful for hot pressing 12 mm diameter and 15 mm long compacts in vacuum or inert atmosphere at a maximum temperature of N 2200 K. Preliminary results on hot pressing of hexagonal BN powder (without binder) are presented.
