The first step in the PM process is blending carefully selected raw powders such as iron, nickel, tin, etc. into metal alloys. This will create the right blend for durability, reliability and accuracy.
We compact the mixture to precise specifications under controlled pressure, the combined metal powders are fed into dies and compressed with mechanical or hydraulic pressures to compact the powder into a stable unit of size, shape, and density required.
Sintering the compacted metal powders in high temperature furnaces bond the particles together and create the desired properties of the finished product.
The powder metallurgy process results in great product consistency and quality of measurement with the advantage of a cost effective solution for difficult to machine parts.
