Powdered Metallurgy

A cost-effective method of forming precision near net-shape metal components

Advantages of Powdered Metal

  • Tight tolerance control (diameter +/- .001", length +/-.005")
  • High production capacity
  • Low cost tooling
  • Green manufacturing process (low energy plus use of recycled metals)
  • Zero draft capability on vertical walls
  • Competitive pricing versus machining and other near net shape processes

Options

  • Secondary machining: CNC Lathes & CNC Mills
  • Copper infiltration for added strength
  • Resin or oil impregnation
  • Plating
  • Heat treatment

Materials

  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • High purity iron
  • Low carbon and alloy steel
  • Stainless steel
