These "green" pieces have the accurate shape but are still very brittle during this part of the process. Then we will permanently harden the powders by sintering the metal to a temperature just below its melting point. This process, known as sintering, ensures that the part will retain its shape. We undertake the sintering process in furnaces that reach extremely high temperatures within a protective atmosphere that allows for the metallurgical bonding of the metal particles without altering the shape of the part.
Unlike other metal parts manufacturing methods, powdered metal parts often require no secondary operations once they have completed the sintering process. We can perform any number of optional secondary processes either in-house or at a number of excellent local vendors including heat treating, tempering, steam treating, machining, drilling, tapping, grinding, honing, boring, lapping, plating, coating, painting, inspection including visual, NDT, and resonance, oil and resin impregnation, as well as assembly operations. These operations can increase the strength, resistance, or lubrication of the powdered metal part.
We provide our customers with superior value. Our overhead is kept low without compromising quality, technical support, or customer service. We do not have to support a large corporate staff. Our managing partners are the owners. We are ISO 9001:2008 certified and certified to the TS-16949 standard as well.
