Powder Metallurgy



Ask a question about this product

Powder Metallurgy (P/M) process with a controlled amount of metal powder mixture is place into a die cavity and pressed under pressure into desired shape called " Parts". This Parts has sufficient strength for further processing.

For our conventional sintering, the parts are placed on a continuous mesh belt. The belt slowly advances through the deluding, high heat and cooling zones of the furnace. The sintering process converts the compacted mechanical bonds between the powder particles into metallurgical bonds.

Rapid cooling of higher alloy materials can be used to eliminate standard heat treating techniques. Tempering is still required to relieve internal stresses.

Some parts are used in the as-sintered condition but many are subjected to secondary operations such as sizing, tumbling, heat treatment, plating or machining.
