Powder Metallurgy

Product life-cycle performance in conditions of extreme heat, wear and corrosion are needed powder metallurgy technology can be a cost-saving design option. And with the advent of additive manufacturing, Powder Metallurgy technology is a step-change improvements in weight, integration, buy-to-fly-ratio and design in aerospace, biomedical and other applications. These are the best possible source of integrated powder metal engineering, prototyping and low volume production,

A pre-mixed metal powder, meeting your material specifications, is gravity fed into the die cavity using a feed shoe. The “green” part is compacted inside the tooling, in most cases to the components final net shape, and then ejected from the die. The irregular shaped iron particles interlock together during the compaction and allow for the parts to be handled in this green state and retain their shape without excessive damage or chipping.

  • Excellent surface finishes
  • Excellent tolerance control
  • Cost-effective processing
  • Inexpensive materials
  • A wider variety of alloys to use
  • A high-quality end products
  • Machining minimization while producing parts
  • Controlled porosity for self-lubrication or filtration
  • Materials that can be heat-treated
