WHY Powder Metal?

WHY Powder Metal?

From the Metal Powder Industry Federation (MPIF):

The PM process provides a host of advantages over competing metalworking technologies. These all add up to cost effectiveness, shape and material flexibility, application versatility, and part-to-part uniformity for improved product quality.

Powdered Metal Gears

Advantages of the PM Process

  • Eliminates or minimizes machining by producing parts at, or close to, final dimensions
  • Eliminates or minimizes scrap losses by typically using more than 97% of the starting raw material in the finished part
  • Permits a wide variety of alloy systems
  • Produces good surface finish
  • Provides materials which may be heat treated for increased strength or increased wear resistance
  • Provides controlled porosity for self lubrication or filtration
  • Facilitates manufacture of complex or unique shapes which would be impractical or impossible with other metalworking processes
  • Is suited to moderate- to high-volume component production requirements
  • Offers long-term performance reliability in critical applications
  • Is cost effective
