Powder Metal Parts & Powder Metal Parts Manufacturers
Solid metal parts that are made from powdered metal via powder metallurgy are strong equipment components used in almost every industry. They are utilized in a variety of industrial applications in the automotive, hardware, electronic, computer and lawn and garden industries.
Powder metal parts are found in automobile components, structural parts, filtration systems and magnetic assemblies. Powdered metal gears are particularly well-suited to the sintering process, as the inherent porosity of powder metal parts naturally dampens sound. Bushings and bearings are also simple to produce through this process, though their tight tolerances usually require a secondary sizing operation. Metal powder parts are a popular choice for parts with magnetic properties, as the soft magnetic material is usually difficult to form, limiting the choice of shapes. However, powder metal can be easily formed in a wide variety of shapes, and its magnetic properties are enhanced in the proper sintering atmosphere. Powdered metal parts are produced through 2 different processes-sintering and metal injection molding. Sintered metal parts, including sintered bronze parts and sintered steel parts, are made by heating metal powder below its melting point then and formed into shapes. Metal injection molding adds polymers or wax through resin impregnation to powdered metal, heats them both up until pliable, where they are then formed in a mold. Both of these processes are often used to produce aluminum powder parts, copper powder parts or iron powder parts.
