Your Source for Powder Metal Components

January 25th, 2022

Are you looking for a new application, or have the need to improve upon an application that already exists? We can offer exclusive engineering assistance for conversions of other process designed components to high quality Powder Metal Components with significant cost savings and minimal waste during production.

Many Material Options Available
Step one: Choose the metal powder material which will produce the component properties that meet or exceed the customer’s expectations in their application.
Options include iron, bronze, brass, stainless steel, magnetic blends, and more.

Create Complex or Unique Shapes
Step two: Compact the chosen raw material into the net shape and sinter the part. This process is done without the scrap that most other processes produce, and holds very tight tolerances without secondary operations, giving the powder metal process an edge in competitive pricing.

Secondary Operations Available if Needed
Step three: Sintering may be the final operation on a simple structure component, but dependent upon the complexity of the component, we can add a secondary operation or heat treatment.
Options include machining, grinding, deburring, plating, coating, oil impregnation, and more.

Are you interested in SIGNIFICANT cost savings by converting a machined component to powder metal? Contact us today to see if we can unlock some savings for you.

The powder metal (also called sintered metal) process consists of three basic steps; powder blending, die compaction and sintering. Dry powder is pressed into a mold that produces precise parts and then goes through a sintering process to create a stable part. This process is best suited for smaller complex parts that require tight tolerances.
