Powdered MetalProven Green TechnologyWhy Powdered Metal? Powder metallurgy is a recognized “green” technology and is
sustainable due to:

  • Raw powder sourced from other industries’ “waste”
  • Net-shape capabilities
  • Very high material-utilization factor
  • Minimized energy inputs

The Powdered Metal Process:

  • Provides good surface finishes
  • Parts may be heat treated for increased strength or enhanced wear resistance
  • Provides part-to-part reproducibility
  • Suited to moderate-to-high volume part production

The Powder Metallurgy Process
There are three basic steps in the process - mixing, compaction and sintering. Follow the links below for more information.
