Powder Metal technology is a unique manufacturing process which has been growing steadily & finding new applications over the last 50 years. Starting with blending of various types of metal powders, the next step is to compact the blended metal powder into various shapes & sizes using specifically designed hydraulic & mechanical presses.

The compacted parts (green components) are subsequently passed through a sintering furnace where the temperature & atmosphere are carefully controlled in order to maintain precise composition, prevent oxidation & in some cases, decarburization. During this process, the powder particles are 'welded' by means of an atomic diffusion process, producing the final material properties.
