Advantages of Powdered Metal Parts

The powdered metal parts process provides unparalleled flexibility in the design of complex net shape or near-net shape parts with unique mechanical properties.

Consistent dimensions from part to part, order to order, year to year.

Dimension accuracy is controlled throughout the production process. Tolerances can be held within 0.001 in. (0.025 mm)

The design engineer may choose from a variety of metals and alloying elements that can be combined to create microstructures and properties tailored to specific applications.

The powdered metal parts manufacturing process is inherently superior to alternatives. There is little wasted raw material and limited, if any, secondary operations required to produce net shape parts.

The surface finish of powdered metal parts is comparable to other parts which have been ground.
